Quote from: Skitube on August 18, 2014, 01:42:25 PMAnother thing I noticed in weekday network map, 792 will be travelling along Fairbairn and Northcott when going from Fairbairn Park to Russell, but via Morshead in the other direction. I haven't seen the route map yet because the website keeps on telling me "page not found"...I wonder if it's a mistake or there's something in the timetable that might explain this
Quote from: vnguyen on August 18, 2014, 04:57:20 PMHow does finishing buses early allowing it for more daytime routes/buses?
Quote from: Bus 400 on August 18, 2014, 08:44:15 PMI can see the 62 lost a service, this happens every network so no change there.But the Blue Rapids look to have been cut back in the middle of the day from every 2-8 minutes to every 6-8 minutes.
Quote from: The Love Guru on August 18, 2014, 06:53:28 PMI don't see any real additional daytime off peak services, only the odd peak service. As there hasn't been an increase in fleet size peak runs are merely are redistribution of resources. Was a nice way to reduce services and costs whilst making out its better for everyone!
Quote from: Skitube on August 19, 2014, 09:52:27 AManybody knows what happens to a 971 once it terminates at Erindale? does it stay there for like 40 mins and return to Tuggeranong as 971? maybe dead run back to tuggeranong?
Quote from: vnguyen on August 19, 2014, 10:14:21 AMWould it be better if the 83/983 services Lyons better rather than the 21 & 22/921 & 922?
Quote from: vnguyen on August 16, 2014, 02:28:59 PMAny platform changes for Woden or Tuggeranong?
Quote from: Bus 400 on August 19, 2014, 12:25:07 PMRoute 2 will be increased to a 20 minute frequency, up from 30. Route 40 becomes 30 minute frequency, up from 60 minutes.But we also have the 71,73,74,75,76,77 cut from off peak running. Surely this would bring the percentage down, if only a tad.
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on August 19, 2014, 11:13:25 AMAgreed. From what I can see, only two routes have gained additional off-peak frequency: 43/343 has gone from hourly to half-hourly and 250 run every 20 minutes, which has effectively replaced 56 & 59 which each ran hourly.But weekday trips have increased 10%! (refer Media Release) How did this occur? Because several routes were split: 10 becomes 40, 10 & 11; 56 becomes 56 & 250; 58 becomes 54 & 58; and also because 314, 315, 318 & 319 ceased operating as Blue Rapid services during the day and were replaced by 300 plus 14, 15, 18 & 19.
Quote from: King of Buses on August 21, 2014, 07:35:41 PMIf one looks closely at the map of Tuggeranong Bus Station in the weekday bus book, they will notice the 18/318 leave Platform 7 (even though the timetable says Platform 4). Also, the 19/319 seem to in Conder and Banks, leave Lanyon, take 11 mins to travel along Box Hill to Conder PS, then 2 mins to Saint Clare of Assisi via Pockett, Forsythe etc.So based of those times, does it mean it operates clockwise or anti-clockwise on northbound journeys? The maps says Anticlockwise but times say differently.Could someone please clarify as I use these fairly frequently...

Quote from: smitho on August 27, 2014, 06:50:00 PMNoticed recently that Google used the incorrect "Callum" for "Callam"....hence my suggestion.
Quote from: 743 on August 27, 2014, 06:54:20 PMBus stop names are supplied to Google by the operator concerned. You'll notice that the streets on Google are spelt correctly (along the streets themselves). If a stop name is wrong, it's ACTION's (or whoever is responsible) fault.
Quote from: Bus 400 on August 27, 2014, 07:26:51 PMYou can only pick up the bus books from Canberra Connect shopfronts. Because when a tourist hops off a bus at Jolimont, the first place you go to Dickson RTA.
Quote from: King of Buses on August 27, 2014, 07:29:40 PMApparently they'll be available at MyWay recharge agents too. But I don't care, I've got my copies
