Quote from: Buzz Killington on March 18, 2013, 07:29:16 PMPossibly not the perfect topic for this, but I've noticed lately that the shoddy videos have been replaced on the in-bus monitors with much clearer (Powerpoint?) slides advertising various things for ACTION - Twitter, Xpresso, Capitals sponsorship..
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on March 18, 2013, 07:52:15 PM Yes. Update loaded when fares changed. There was still one bus which didn't have the updated file, but that may have been fixed by now.

Quote from: Bus 400 on February 18, 2013, 11:06:52 PMI hope someone can help me out here, but my understanding of the following development application (http://www.actpla.act.gov.au/topics/your_say/comment/pubnote?sq_content_src=%2BdXJsPWh0dHAlM0ElMkYlMkZhcHBzLmFjdHBsYS5hY3QuZ292LmF1JTJGcHVibm90ZSUyRnB1Ym5vdGVEZXRhaWxfbmV3LmFzcCUzRkRBX25vJTNEMjAxMzIzMDM0JmFsbD0x) is that someone wishes to construct a bus depot within the suburb of Beard. If so the question would be who? While haven't seen the block in question to determine its size, could this mean CDC is moving Deanes to Beard or is that mob at the back of the railway station being kicked out or something else?
Quote from: ajw373 on May 21, 2013, 07:32:15 PMObviously someone in the workshop with too much time on their hands. Hardly presents a very professional image does it?Same too with the puerile names given to the buses too, though do understand that one of those names (the first IIRC) was done in honour of a driver, but the rest common, It may well give us something to write about and a laugh but not very professional.
Quote from: Buzz Killington on May 21, 2013, 08:02:15 PMNot sure if 319 / "Big Merv" was the first one to be named, but it is the only one to be sign-written (in the current fleet at least). Quite a nice touch and would be nice to see other long-serving staff commemorated in such a fashion.
Quote from: Sir Pompously on July 25, 2013, 09:05:31 PMSaw a new priority seat sticker on BUS-390 today. Features on of the ACTION family characters with a speech bubble proclaiming the seat is for use by Elderly, disabled etc.
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on August 14, 2013, 12:31:53 PMJust checked the Floriade website: a shuttle service will operate again this year. No info yet on who will operate or what type of bus will be used, but would expect it to be the same as last year.
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on December 09, 2013, 10:40:19 PMAn interesting outcome from the line marking upgrade at City Bus Station - there is a new Bus Zone on London Circuit between Verity Lane and East Row (the pre-1982 333 stop). It has been line marked and sign posted. Maybe QCity / Transborder will be moved to there.
Quote from: Bus 400 on July 03, 2014, 10:28:17 PMOne of my informants tells me that from Term 3, Qcity Transit (Hall/Uriarra/Majura) & Keirs (Tharwa) will be running the ACT Rural school buses.I do know that Keirs previously held this contract.
Quote from: smitho on July 04, 2014, 09:13:22 PM One of the rural type ACTION school runs I used to do, from Pialligo to the Federal Highway intersection via the Majura Rd, appears to have gone over to private operator, (possibly several years back).
Quote from: volvo on August 29, 2014, 07:55:12 PMOn a slightly different note - I was on 945 for the first time today; what's the deal with the seats? How long have they been like that? Also, today I was on a PR100.3 (106 I think, but not 100% sure) - I'm pretty sure the side desto was from a PR100.2; can anyone confirm?
Quote from: ... on September 30, 2014, 08:15:42 PMI was at the Chisholm Shops this afternoon and saw bus 909 with the desto up as 88 parked in the Coles loading dock . I'm assuming that it was waiting for the 88 to be due to leave, since it had left when I came back about 15mins later, but seriously, since when are buses allowed to park in loading docks!!!!!!!!???
