Routes and Timetables / Re: Interim weekday timetable ...
Last post by triumph - April 05, 2022, 07:22:28 PM
The question is why?
The light rail arm of Transport Canberra is running normally, and if I recall correctly, actually increased frequency to   increase passenger spacing. The bus arm, in contrast, is remaining substandard. If light rail can manage, there is no damn good reason why the bus arm can't. It is ironic that much media criticism of light rail was and is based on the perception of unreliability because the vehicles are constrained to the tracks and can't overtake and divert easily. It turns pout the real unreliability potential is with the bus system.
It is disappointing that the credibility of public transport remains damaged.

After hinting that the interim timetable might end for the start of Term 2, Transport Canberrra have now confirmed that it will continue ... without giving any indication of a new end date.

The penalty is to wait for another correct answer. In which case, I'll submit this (I can't find any previous entry which would deem this to be invalid)-

Quote from: vnguyen on April 02, 2022, 11:16:59 AMWeston Creek Terminus to Woden Interchange.

64 & 65
2139 & 1637

I'm not sure if this is valid, but the stops are on opposite sides of the street.

❌ not valid. The maps don't reflect reality - 2139 (R7 & 64) will actually depart from the back of the Terminus building.
