Quote from: Barry Drive on June 11, 2021, 10:10:12 AMConstruction work on the new Turner Layover is progressing. This could be the catalyst for a network change next year when City West departures move to Rimmer St.The other cause of a network revamp would be if they decide to lease 34 electric buses and store them at a satellite depot – I would assume they'd need to reconfigure the shifts although that may not affect the timetables.In any case, the new GTFS has been released taking the timetable up to mid December. So that suggests no changes happening this year, other than the usual Christmas timetable reduction.

As it is, I'm wondering whether they will be able to keep the existing timetable (and just swap City West for Rimmer St) or if the times will need to be adjusted.2. I've previously commented that weekend Rapids could be modified to free up resources for regular routes. And possibly give some thought to earlier finishing on both days.This may be heresy, but the R4 could probably cope being run every 20 minutes Sat and Sun evenings.3. Based on what's been built, access will be via an extension of Kingsley St, and there will be a second entrance off Watson St. The simplest option will be to make the Kingsley St traffic light phase two-way requiring vehicles turning right to give way to buses going straight.

Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on June 24, 2021, 02:29:24 AMWent past on Tuesday and it looks as though there's no direct way in from the Barry Drive bus lane right now, I would assume they're going to add one right?

Quote from: Barry Drive on June 26, 2021, 11:17:08 AMI don't see why after, say, 7pm R4 can't run every 20 minutes, R6 every 30 minutes and the other rapids every hour IF doing so would enable other routes to run more often during the day.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on November 02, 2021, 11:27:20 PMIt would be a better compromise to operate the R4 only between Tuggeranong & City during late hours on weekends, and also after 9pm on weekdays; with a timetable adjustment, the section between City & Cohen Street would be serviced by R2 & R3.R5 should also be adjusted to operate only between Woden and Lanyon Marketplace during those hours as well; R4 will provide capacity between City & Woden.
