Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on July 18, 2016, 10:41:13 AMShouldn't expect bus books till at least a week (or 2 days) beforehand again right?
Quote from: vnguyen on July 18, 2016, 02:23:49 PMLooks like route 81 will no longer serves Telstra Tower/Black Mountain. According to the new network map.
Quoteand modified Tourist Loop route - adding War Memorial, Parliament House and Museum but removing Telstra Tower
Quote from: Barry Drive on July 18, 2016, 12:05:14 PM(This also means that the re-issued bus books will not remain in circulation much longer = collector's edition!)
Quote from: vnguyen on July 24, 2016, 12:48:03 PMI know that no weekend announcements have been made. But will the also extend route 983 into Coombs?
Quote from: King of Buses on July 24, 2016, 01:31:01 PMOne would presume so. At the same time they'd probably modify the 981 to operate via the new 81.One thing that has surprised me with this new network is that they didn't divert the 51/251/951 down Kingsland Pde to Casey Market Town - which has once again annoyed those who live in and travel to that area...
Quote from: The Love Guru on July 24, 2016, 06:18:38 PMCan't do it whilst maintaining coverage of Casey and not having to double back on itself.

Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on August 05, 2016, 07:05:23 PMHas anyone noticed anything that may indicate that they've finally fixed that annoying thing about the departure/checkpoint times of the bus routes? - where most routes that travel to the same destination all leave in the same timeframe of 5-20 minutes (during the day and the evening). (Like the 60,61,62,63,65 all leaving woden and tuggeranong all around the same time together)

Quote from: Busfanatic101They just don't seem to understand. One wonders sometimes whether all those surveys are just for show.
Quote from: vnguyen on August 07, 2016, 01:36:15 PMAccording to TransitTimes route 81 still shows that Telstra Tower in the list of stops and on the map. Maybe the new timetables forgot to put it in.
QuoteThe Blue Rapid bus will be extended to #Lanyon from mid next year, offering a new service for #LanyonValley residents to #Tuggeranong, #Woden, #Civic and #Belconnen every 15 minutes or better.Next week the Blue Rapid will extend to #Kippax along Southern Cross Drive to take advantage of upgraded bus stops and give #WestBelconnen residents a quicker journey.And we're pleased to announce that in 2017 we will extend the Blue Rapid to Lanyon as well. We know residents in Lanyon are looking forward to this new service, which will make it even easier to choose public transport.
Quote from: Busfanatic101 on August 24, 2016, 06:21:46 PMWhat would this network be best titled? Network 16 or Network 14.2?
Quote from: 743 on August 24, 2016, 06:11:29 PMThe announcement says "15 minutes or better". That doesn't discount a 10 minute frequency. They're probably just covering their bases for the evenings - when it will probably be 15 minutes, like it is now. Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on August 22, 2016, 10:15:08 PMit is really good to have region books instead of one massive unnecessary book.
Quote from: Bus 503 on August 24, 2016, 09:35:21 PMDisagree with you there - one book with all the timetables in it is better than having to carry around multiple ones just because you are travelling to a different 'region'. I might end up in the Tuggeranong region for some reason in the new network and because I don't have my Tuggeranong region bus book I won't have a clue of the routes I might need to go home. I'm not sure where you get the 'massive' from - the old bus books were small and thin making them very convenient.
Quote from: triumph on September 20, 2016, 12:11:56 AMBus fanatic 101 has made a good point re timetable mass. The former all-in-one weekday book has a mass of 289g, the 5 new weekday books together have a mass of 684g. At 2 1/3 times heavier, it is a significant extra weight to lug around.
