Quote from: Busnerd on December 02, 2019, 10:39:38 PMIt will run a standard Sunday timetable on Christmas day as it is a public holiday.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on December 03, 2019, 02:14:42 PMHighly unlikely; even the R4 is only funded for a 30 minute service between 0900 - 1600 on that day. The most likely occurrence is the L1 will run every 30 minutes between 0900 and 1600 also, in line with the R4; were a standard Sunday service to operate, it would be highly inequitable for such a hugely superior service to be operated to Canberra's finest district (Gungahlin) as opposed to other districts such as those south of the lake with only individual rapid routes running at reduced frequencies for less than half of standard Sunday operating hours.
Quote from: Busnerd on December 05, 2019, 09:02:03 AMNot unlikely at all, a sunday timetable will run for light rail operations.
Quote from: Northside on December 06, 2019, 07:52:28 PMThere's no politicking at play here. It's pretty simple, cmet have different enterprise agreements to action and they have a different obligation under their contract to provide a service.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on December 05, 2019, 04:37:41 PMmay use the L1 to travel
Quote from: triumph on December 06, 2019, 10:56:55 PMHave noticed 'L1' regularly used in some posts. Isn't it R1?
Quote from: Barry Drive on December 07, 2019, 09:51:59 AMso Canberra Metro are contractually obliged to run a full Sunday service on 25 December.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on December 07, 2019, 08:50:58 AMNope, it's 'EL1'.
Quote from: triumph on December 07, 2019, 10:14:18 PMYou say 'EL1' and Toyota Camry regularly refers to 'L1' for the Light Rail route.Looking at maps, the printed timetables maps refer to 'R1', the TC website map (getting around) shows 'R1', and the CMET operations website map also shows 'R1'. Nowhere did I come across 'L1' or 'EL1'.The only difference I have noticed, is the MyWay record drops the 'R' from all Rapid routes.At a recent function attended by TC representatives some one asked what was 'R1' and was told it was the Light Rail. In what PT did I get today posts, I have regularly referred to 'R1' and no one has picked me up on that.So, what is the story for 'L1'/'EL1'?
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on December 08, 2019, 06:10:51 AMYou do know a joke when you see one right?
Quote from: triumph on December 13, 2019, 05:12:58 PM...'limited' on buses. A very discriminatory situation.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on December 13, 2019, 08:21:32 PMSounds pretty normal to me. I had a little look through the revised network, and from the little I've seen, it looks like the revised network is actually better than the one we currently have... The black and white doesn't help though, might need to use my binoculars to see the flaws better.
Quote from: Barry Drive on November 30, 2019, 10:22:16 AMThere do not appear to be any "Nightrider" in the GTFS, but that doesn't necessarily mean they won't operate. (Although by this time last year Nightrider details had been announced, so perhaps it won't be happening.)
Quote from: Toyota Camry on December 22, 2021, 10:10:00 PM..... this would be in line with the smaller city of "Hobart" in Tasmania, a small nation to the south of Australia, which provides a Sunday bus timetable on this day.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on December 22, 2021, 10:10:00 PMIt should be considered operating a Sunday timetable for buses on Christmas Day, as operates for light rail services; this would be in line with the smaller city of "Hobart" in Tasmania, a small nation to the south of Australia, which provides a Sunday bus timetable on this day.
Quote from: Busnerd on December 24, 2021, 01:38:12 AMSo residents of Campbell that use the 54 won't need a bus just because it is Christmas day?
Quote from: Barry Drive on December 07, 2021, 07:34:42 PMThe new GTFS for the Christmas Holiday / School Holiday period has already been released.There will not be a separate "reduced Christmas timetable" this year: the "COVID" timetable from August will re-commence from Monday 20 December and will continue until the end of School Holidays on 28 January 2022.The "regular" school term timetable will resume from 31 January.Sunday / Public Holiday timetable will apply on 27, 28 Dec and 1, 2, 3 Jan. There will be a special Christmas Day timetable which (presumably) will be the same as, or similar to, last year's.
Quote from: Bus 400 on December 18, 2022, 10:24:41 PMI wonder if they'll remember to add the 47 or if Whitlam will be forgotten for 6 weeks?
