Quote from: Bus 400 on October 08, 2009, 10:26:03 PMIf you download the Intertown timetable, southbound 318/319 services have had a timetable change. But this update hasn't been listed on the ACTION timetable updates.
QuoteUrgent Notice to PassengersDiversions to Route 30 and 31Passengers of the route 30 and 31 are advised that, due to an emergency incident on Ellenborough Avenue (between Daintree Cresent, Kaleen and the Barton Highway), services are now being diverted away from the area.The route 30 and 31 will divert via Baldwin Drive and Ginninderra Drive before resuming normal running. The route 6 is not affected.Due to these diversions, services may be delayed and therefore passengers should allow for additional time to get to their destination. These diversions are expected to remain in place for several hours.ACTION thanks passengers for their patience. Please contact ACTION on 13 17 10 for further information.
Quote8:54pm Monday 29 August 2011 - Update four on gas leak at Kaleen.Gas leak has been isolated. Repairs are continuing with ACT Fire Brigade crews due to depart by 10pm. http://www.esa.act.gov.au/ESAWebsite/content_esa/home_page/esa_home_page.html
Quote from: Bus 400 on September 17, 2012, 06:01:07 PMAs of today, only Routes 3,4,5,7 & City West terminating routes use the northbound stop on Alinga Street. All other services use the new stop on Marcus Clarke Street. The temporary stop on Marcus Clarke Street has also been closed.
QuoteThe Tourist Loop Route 81/981 will change route direction as a result of the reopening of Constitution Avenue.Route 81/981 will travel from ANZAC Parade then right onto Constitution Avenue, left onto London Circuit and then onto Commonwealth Avenue.This change will also allow the route to service the National Convention Centre.The timetable will not be affected by this service change.

Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on February 18, 2017, 04:46:46 PMHope this is the right place to ask this, anyway though. I didn't know that the multicultural festival was on (cause I didn't read the latest email alert until just now), so when the 300 to the City that I caught yesterday took the alternate detour, that's when I realized. It got me thinking about something though, because the 300s aren't suppose to or are required to not stop at the west side bus stops whilst taking the detour, why do they go that way then? Cause the southbound routes exit the interchange taking a right, then go left onto Vernon Circle, and continue on with the route - nice and easy and quick. But the northbound take the full other London Circuit trip, and cause they don't stop why can't they just change lanes after bus 8889, and go around Vernon Circle the other way - at least if they go that way, they would only need to wait at the London Circuit/Northbourne Ave intersection, whereas going the west detour passes through an extra set of lights + the Northbourne crossing lights don't last as long as the North/South sides, which means they're having to wait longer esp during peak. Can someone clear this up for me please, cause it just doesn't seem all that logical to me. Or if you think that this would be a good suggestion for ACTION to use, I will do so.
Quote from: triumph on March 16, 2017, 10:28:06 PMRoute 200 Red Rapid - Use of rear bus door.Perhaps I have missed a forum reference to this but I can't find any, so here goes.Transport Canberra has notices at the Gungahlin Terminus stop inbound to City and leaflets at the Civic office advising:Commencing Monday 13th Feb 2017 customers will be able to exit the bus using both front and rear doors on all Red Rapid services at all stops, as part of a one month trial.Customers are encouraged to use the rear door to exit so as to speed boarding up and so reduce dwell time.But there's more,Boarding through the rear door for MyWay patrons is allowed at Gungahlin, Civic, Barton and Canberra Outlet Centre. Quite a development. 'As part of a one month trial', so what is the rest of the trial? Presumably the month is up, but the notice is still displayed. It will be interesting what the trial outcome will deliver.
Quote from: triumph on June 14, 2017, 01:18:32 PMA straw blowing in the wind......Reference Canberra Times, today, pages 8-9, item 'Denman Shopping Precinct Aired'.Mr Stephen Byron (Capital Airport Group managing director) is reported to have said '...with Action Buses to commence services to the suburb in the near future.'
Quote from: King of Buses on May 30, 2017, 07:42:45 PMIn my boredom last night I came across this video where TCCS director gives a presentation about Public Transport in the Molonglo Valley. https://www.facebook.com/MolongloValleyMingle/videos/658916987632119/It mentions that the next network (whenever that may be) will feature an extension to the 182 to serve Denman Prospect. The route seems to take a one way loop from John Gorton Dr onto Coaldrake Ave, Bielski St and Wyndham Ave, before returning to John Gorton Dr. To be honest that could easily be added now given the timing on the 182 being quite loose.

If this is the detour you refer to, then not taking the detour might be weird.

Quote from: triumph on June 06, 2019, 11:02:05 PMDiversion from Hospital Rd Garran 11th to 20th June due road works.TC Service Alerts advises R6 will not service the Canberra Hospital stop in Hospital Rd or the nearby stop in Gilmore Cresc. It seems the service will use Bateson Rd.The 'secret' AMC Shuttle also uses Hospital Rd but is not mentioned in the Service Alert. Fits.
Quote from: triumph on December 05, 2019, 11:21:12 PMTC has issued a notice that Hospital Rd is closing for a period. Details of impact on R6 are given BUT as previously nothing has been said about the (secret) AMC Shuttle which also travels via Hospital Rd..
Quote from: Snorzac on August 15, 2021, 11:28:35 PMOne would assume possibly something to do with the Gold Creek School exposure site covering parents of children attending the school. You would think that some drivers, possibly (given the size of the school) may be affected by this.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on August 25, 2021, 06:32:35 PMTo the best of your knowledge, have any of the following been used on local/school services in the past, and if yes where the bus stops were/are located?-Jim Pike Ave between Woodcock Dr and Callaway Cres (Gordon)-Jackie Howe Cres/Carson St (MacArthur)
Quote from: Bus 400 on August 26, 2021, 05:56:15 PMOriginally, the only access to Pine Island was via the old Monaro Highway alignment. Which was a day trip even from Woden.
Quote from: triumph on December 02, 2021, 12:18:20 PMThis change seems to have happened sometime since the July 18th 2020 printed TT booklet. Never noticed any TC announcement in Service Alerts ( perhaps buried in News) - can anyone enlighten?
Quote from: Bus 400 on May 06, 2022, 06:42:14 PMFor the brains trust. Is/has Giralang been the only suburb that has (for most of it's life) had 2 different bus routes going to 3 or more termini?Giralang use to have separated buses from both City & Belconnen. With the City bus terminating at Kaleen. Now buses come from Gungahlin & Dickson going to Belconnen.
Quote from: Northside on May 07, 2022, 07:47:35 PMDenman Prospect has 2 routes, heading to City, Woden and Weston Creek
Quote from: Snorzac on May 08, 2022, 01:02:42 AM❌Denman Prospect had three routes
Quote from: triumph on May 09, 2022, 09:28:15 PMWaiting for a TT change is highly desirable but not compulsory.
