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.
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on September 03, 2014, 08:51:12 PMRoute 19/319 online timetable has been updated - now 2 minutes to first timing point and then 10/11 minutes to the next. The PDF version of the timetable has not yet been updated. And yes, the 18/318 depart from 4 - there is now a notice on platform 7.
Quote from: Bus 400 on September 02, 2014, 12:28:55 PMApparently new shifts are to start on the first day of Term 1 2015.
Quote from: Skitube on September 06, 2014, 08:59:20 AMnow i can see why they cleaved rt 10, so they can put STAG on 40... quite a few runs by STAG, even during off-peaks!!!!!!meanwhile STAGs are also appearing on 39, and since Red Hill is now serviced by 4, STAGs are appearing in that region as well.Yet to see which Woden-Tuggeranong runs are STAG
Quote from: King of Buses on September 06, 2014, 09:53:02 AMI don't think any 60 series (or 71) Woden to Tuggers runs have Scania 14.5's allocated to them. Mostly because of Erindale and Wanniasa (and Vansitart for the 62). A northbound 60 may be able to use a STAG but the southbound one (becuase of the back of the woden Plaza) and all other 60 series runs, no STAGs. Only the 18 and 19 (and 300 series counterparts) can be legally operated by STAGs I think.
Quote from: smitho on September 06, 2014, 11:56:06 AMA number of afternoon orange standard bus runs are being operated with "green buses" - due to insufficient standard buses being available to meet shift requirements.
Quote from: The Love Guru on September 02, 2014, 09:54:41 AMHaven't found a run with too much time on it yet. This morning was debacle with lack of vehicles, rain and a timetable that can only be described as ambitious. Late running up to 20 minutes was the norm today and won't improve.
Quote from: Bus 400 on September 09, 2014, 07:45:20 PMAn additional (aka after many complaints) 725 will be added shortly.
Quote from: The Love Guru on September 10, 2014, 11:38:45 AMI think they forgot a lot of things, like their social obligation to provide a way for people to get home after 9pm!
Quote from: King of Buses on September 10, 2014, 05:53:12 PMAlternatively, have evening runs that service a larger area (but NO flexibuses....). Nightriders perhaps except from local interchanges rather than civic? Might come up with some ideas if I get around to it.
Quote from: King of Buses on September 10, 2014, 05:53:12 PMWhat they could've done (and this may be more at home in the "Network the next thread"), is on friday and saturday nights run services on suburban until later (2330? - Thats how long the Blue rapids and that go for). This could easily be accomodated by having shorter shifts that end around 2100 continue on these nights only (which means more money for drivers ). Alternatively, have evening runs that service a larger area (but NO flexibuses....). Nightriders perhaps except from local interchanges rather than civic? Might come up with some ideas if I get around to it.

Quote from: The Love Guru on September 10, 2014, 08:08:49 PMRed and blue Rapids to the main town centres, Area services from there after 9pm. No need for inbound services after 9pm.
Quote from: smitho on September 13, 2014, 12:22:34 AMTwo Network maps would be handy - one for weekdays, 2nd for weekends - would be handy..... So that passengers can easily identify adjoining route patterns.
Quote from: vnguyen on September 11, 2014, 03:25:30 PMI'm not sure if it is a good idea but would it be better if the maps in the bus book be better if it shows where the bus stops are? Like the ones in the old timetables & maps for each route where It was ndicated by a circle on the maps.
Quote from: smitho on September 06, 2014, 11:52:34 AMNoticed that ACTION got a serve on Crikey yesterday - over absence of hard copy timetable displays such as at the information boards on Platform 7 at Civic interchange and the information bay near Platform 6 at Woden.Instead, passengers are referred to the web site and related electronic pathways.
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on September 18, 2014, 09:16:23 AMIt was only temporary. New bus station signage was being installed last night.
Quote from: Bus 400 on September 23, 2014, 08:39:39 PMBecause no one leaves Lanyon after 8pm on Saturday & Sunday nights, the 20:32 ex-Lanyon is no longer running.
Quote from: King of Buses on September 24, 2014, 09:14:13 PM........or a 786 to Fairbairn...not that I ever saw anyone do the latter (other than me occasionally...)
Quote from: Buzz Killington on September 26, 2014, 03:19:50 PMSo people are capable of transferring buses outside of interchanges!
Quote from: ajw373 on September 26, 2014, 03:41:33 PMIt is one hell of a risk around this town. Might be stranded somewhere for an hour or two
Quote from: Bus 400 on September 27, 2014, 10:17:18 AMUsing NXTBUS, you can see how far away your connecting bus. If it shows up as 705 Belconnen Cancelled for example, then said passenger would continue onto the City change there.
Quote from: ajw373 on September 27, 2014, 11:01:52 AMIt is almost like the info at stops was written by people on here. You know the ones that know every route and connection point and just assume everyone knows the same rather than give info to the lowest common denominator. Action could do well to visit London and see what info they provide passengers at stops
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on September 27, 2014, 12:54:03 PMI'm offended. As, I suspect, are many other "people on here". I think you'll find I've been fairly critical about the lack of useful information at bus stops and bus stations and many others have been too.
