Quote from: ACTbusspotter on March 10, 2014, 09:43:05 AMThere is a message to drivers about NXTBUS at the depots. 350 buses (out of ~420) have been fitted and the website will be activated for system testing very soon - possibly even tomorrow (11 Mar).I have noticed recently a marked increase in the number of "real time" departures reporting on the City PID - usually 5/7 or better.

Quote from: Buzz Killington on March 20, 2014, 10:28:15 AMPoles have been installed at Westfield Bus Station. I spotted two, both at the same end of the station fairly close to the traffic lights.
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on March 21, 2014, 11:28:58 AMI'm sure you'll all be thrilled to learn that the NXTBUS touch screen kiosk thing has been installed inside Westfield - next to the Coke vending machine.
Quote from: Bus 400 on March 21, 2014, 07:36:29 PMAlternatively, you could SMS your stop number to the SMS system. Or go the old way & when the bus starts the route, start walking to your stop. It's the way I was brought up in Canberra & Orange & I still do this these days.

Quote from: Bus 400 on August 07, 2014, 06:33:29 PMThe whole system was made public today, this includes the website ( NXTBUS.act.gov.au ) & the touch screen kiosks.
Quote from: Buzz Killington on August 12, 2014, 08:59:42 PMFound it a bit odd that there's no signage on the kiosk at Westfield. Sure you could read the touch-screen but tucked away in the corner where it is, they should make it a little more obvious.
Quote from: smitho on August 12, 2014, 09:12:26 PMDuring the early NXTBUS trials, bus display screen maps indicated major "connecting" bus routes at interchanges and other junctions.Was useful information which is handy to have, but small screen size meant that this info made the maps look a bit cluttered.
Quote from: Buzz Killington on August 20, 2014, 08:08:27 PMHere's what I got when I looked up 2916 (Woden Bus Station Arrivals) earlier today:27 to Citywest2 to Sydney Avenue23 to Citywest21 to Woden Bus Station749 to Belconnen Depot64 to Citywest60 to Tuggeranong Depot2 to Tuggeranong Depot
Quote from: 743 on August 20, 2014, 07:53:17 PMThere still appear to be some issues now that the timetable info has been "switched off". For instance, bus 857 is not installed with NXTBUS equipment - but it's running route services. Also, I've had some results lately for buses going to Tuggeranong Depot - e.g. a 7 heading south is shown as going to "Tuggeranong Depot" - assume it dead runs after the Museum, but that shouldn't be showing up!
Quote from: Bus 400 on October 10, 2014, 06:54:00 PMIt looks to me like the portion below the first 67 has been blacked out. As you will notice that part of the T for Tuggeranong is missing. I'm happy to admit if I'm wrong (which hopefully I am).
