Quote from: lukeo25 on April 28, 2009, 06:47:12 PMwould it good i wonder and would it be pre-paid tickets only to speed it up, and the new ticketing system might be in force by then.
Quote from: Irisbus Rider on May 01, 2009, 01:00:31 PMExcellent, I like the sound of it, finally, a real express bus service between town centres, bring it on!
Quote from: TP 3000 on June 25, 2009, 09:42:30 PMThat road that Erindale Bus Stops are on have made worse today with the road being narrowed with a traffic island being painted down the middle. But for most low floor buses to leave Erindale (southbound) they have to cross over the double lines. Also buses entering Erindale Terminus from there also have to go pretty wide & every so often you'll have a car stopped forward of the stop line & that makes it even harder.
Quote from: Bus 400 on September 25, 2009, 08:00:06 PMIt would work so much better if Erindale was cut out.But I can see the need for a direct run from Woden to Barton. At the moment people that work in Barton & won't to do anything in Woden have to either wait for a 6 that goes on a scenic trip through Manuka & Red Hill. Or if they are lucky enough take a 2,3,5 & do the same thing.
Quote from: ACTIONACTION will soon be trialling a high frequency, limited stops, rapid bus service - REDEX - between Gungahlin Market Place and Kingston Railway Station. The trial will commence on Monday 16 November and go through until 30 June 2010 (including school holidays, but not the Christmas/New Year period).The REDEX route will travel via Mitchell, Northbourne Avenue, the City, Russell and Barton. This REDEX trial was chosen because it is consistent with one of the key routes identified within the draft Public Transport Network Plan.The focus on one route for the trial will allow ACTION to increase service frequency to every 15 minutes between 7 am to 7 pm, Monday to Friday. ACTION's new wheelchair accessible buses will be used for the trial. These buses have internal information screens.Customers will be able to use the bike racks on the buses and pay normal bus fares.The REDEX buses will only stop at the designated REDEX bus stops along the route. These will be identified by a REDEX bollard. More detail regarding these stops will be provided closer to the time.Timetables will be available from Monday 2 November 2009.

Quote from: Bus 400 on September 28, 2009, 01:31:44 PMI suspect the 5 will be considerably shortened & few changes to the 80 in November.
Quote from: Irisbus Rider on September 25, 2009, 08:13:58 PMIt will definately be a while until we see RedEx, a long while.
Quote from: Buzz Killington on September 28, 2009, 06:08:30 PMREDEX will be promoted through a community awareness campaign that will commence in October.
Quote from: Bus 400 on September 29, 2009, 12:01:47 AMI see the main issue in being people will start to bitch & moan because they signaled the bus from a non designated RedEx stop.
Quote from: Goldstar on September 29, 2009, 09:27:33 AMTwo points I'd like to make regarding the new RedEx services. First is that I reckon it should only accept pre-purchased tickets - no ticket sales onboard, emphasis is on express...
Quote from: Irisbus Rider on September 29, 2009, 12:17:48 AMThey'll learn pretty damn quick when every RedEx bus sails past them.

Quote from: Martin on September 29, 2009, 01:00:22 PMThe best way to achieve an express service is to have no passengers - bus usually makes good time then.
Quote from: Martin on October 28, 2009, 12:07:41 AMThis is for real - apologies for the quality - a photo of the Redex Route Map poster at the Belconnen Depot. That slogan looks vaguely familiar!
