QuoteTrial to exit from the rear door on Red Rapid bus services now in effect As from Monday 13 February 2017, customers are now able to exit the bus using both the front and rear doors at all stops on Red Rapid 200 services as part of an one month trial.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on February 18, 2017, 03:33:27 PMI just read the latest TC email alert update, and something about it doesn't quite makes sense - to me at least. Ok, it's only 1 month, but still what's the point? Aren't the trams going to be replacing the Red Rapid in the next few years anyway, why not do it for the Blue Rapid or something, cause that's still going to keep going.
Quote from: Barry Drive on April 03, 2017, 09:44:35 PMOut of curiosity, was it more than one bus and could you tell which depots?The problem arises because the MyWay consoles set the time when their update is pushed at the depot - and if this occurs before the 2am changeover, the time will be wrong until the next update occurs.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on December 02, 2017, 10:14:07 PMBought my first legit cash fare ticket in 3 years or something tonight. Rarely ever forget to take my my way card with me, but I left it in my suit pocket Doing this reminded me of the announcement of how cash fares will no longer be a thing in the very near future. Brings up many questions esp one of how people who forget their my way/TC cards will do.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on September 19, 2018, 09:26:33 PMIt's bad enough that management have ordered the staff to cease using the window at Woden, how're the little old laddies and technophobes supposed to use these without help you'd have to wonder.
Travelling with MyWay is the cheapest way to travel on #TC Bus & Light Rail services. The ticketing system will automatically calculate the cheapest possible fare per passenger based on any eligible concession and fare caps.

Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on September 29, 2018, 11:16:21 AMA few years ago when I went to Melbourne to visit my brother and ride the buses and trams there, I used what they had back then the Myki card (don't know if it's still that) and although you were required to tag on and off on the buses, you only needed to tag on with the trams. Would I be right in presuming that for our LR, it'll work the same way, but like the buses, not tagging off will result in the standard cash fare rated charge?
Quote from: Snorzac on September 29, 2018, 11:27:22 AMThe tag on/off on the trams is due to the way their zones work, I believe all but the route 86 and 108 (?) run solely within one zone. If you go out of zone 1 then you are meant to tap off but I have no idea how that is patrolled. I generally tap on and off to be safe Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Quote from: Barry Drive on January 22, 2019, 01:21:00 PMWe have news of all 4 AVMs being operational today. No official announcement.
Quote from: Barry Drive on January 25, 2019, 10:31:41 AMWe have an official announcementWe also have an ACT Bus news articleSylvan - I recommend you take the time to read one or both of these. You will find these sources are far more reliable.

Quote from: triumph on September 28, 2018, 03:26:59 PMAt one of the 'Consultations' it was said that the Consortium for the Light Rail had to meet a standard for avoiding fare evasion. This could result in the Consortium conducting routine revenue protection activities. Considering the number of ACTION patrons waved aboard with sob stories, expired balances, etc. and a perceived almost zero ACTION revenue protection activity, there might be quite some angst coming for light rail users inclined to such habits.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on October 04, 2019, 02:19:53 AMInteresting, I've only had 1 check and have ridden the trams more than 10 times now.
