Two ways to narrow down the date of the unknown timetables:

(1) The Fares shown include a 50 cent day ticket. I've got a fares brochure from the pre-ACTION days - when the Fare Go ticket was first introduced - so around 1976-77, and it had daily tickets costing $1.30. Based on that, the timetable would have to be much earlier so maybe 1973-74.

(2) The timetable ran until midnight on Sunday.

My guess would be around 1973, but it's only a guess.

The letraset font which they've used for the "Route" heading dates it to the "psychedelic" era of the late 60s or early 70s.
