Quote from: Irisbus Rider on June 06, 2012, 12:42:54 AMPerhaps a depot at Mitchell is under investigation.....?
Quote from: Budget Paper No 3 page 170This study will assess options and provide a preliminary design for a third major bus depot to be located in the Gungahlin/Mitchell area. Establishment of a depot in this area will improve service delivery of public transport in north Canberra.
Quote from: Budget Paper No 3 page 63Public transport fares in 2012-13 increase by $5.43 (2.5 per cent) for students and $28.08 (2.6 per cent) for adults, reflecting growth in costs. In the previous year, fares decreased by around 4 per cent.
Quote from: ajw373 on June 06, 2012, 04:01:30 PMWhy a terminus at Charnwood when no bus currently terminates there?
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on June 07, 2012, 12:46:54 PMThe reason why no buses terminate there is because there is no terminus there for buses to terminate at!Which is WHY you would build a terminus - so buses can terminate.DUH!

Quote from: ajw373 on June 07, 2012, 12:59:57 PMSo ... what services are going to terminate at this new terminus then? To me it makes no sense what so ever when there is a perfectly good terminus at Fraser West. Unless of course there is some grand plan to cut short some services to Charnwood shops, the 313 for example with Lhotsky Street serviced by the 45 and not worrying about part of Shakespear [sic] Crescent, but to be honest cannot see any logical reason to do so, when as I said Fraser West is just up the road.So common [sic] what services will use this terminus when built?

Quote from: ajw373 on June 07, 2012, 07:39:10 PMGuess the same could be said for the south too, with Erindale taking a far greater focus for the areas nearby rather than Tuggeranong and Woden.
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on June 07, 2012, 03:30:09 PMIf you have a look at the Transport for Canberra 2031 Frequent Network plan page 20 (don't have time to post a link right now), you will see that a proposed 15 min "Frequent Local" service runs along Florey Dr and terminates at Charnwood.
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on June 16, 2012, 04:19:15 PMOr even the 2016 Indicative Frequent Network map shows a potential frequent service terminating at Charnwood.Map link here - refer to page 67.
