Routes and Timetables / Re: Route / Timetable discussion
« Last post by Sylvan Loves Buses on Today at 03:55:22 PM »
That is just the tip of the iceberg of the horrific planning that went into the timings of the past few networks. If you ever ride those buses regularly you'd notice that one bus will pretty much always be empty and the other sometimes full - and that's not just for these two routes. Even if the 60 were removed, I still don't feel it would need an artic, maybe a higher capacity bus like a 2, 3 or a Volgren, cause like most of the routes like it, most of the patronage is 300 users going between the City and Woden.
Although not quite as often, but pretty frequent at that time of the afternoon are the 62/162s. I've been getting the alter-ego of that 160 (162) and it gets maybe 10 people on it at any one time on any day. Most of the patronage is for Kambah, and not 300 users mostly probably due to the fact the the 160 picked them all up as there's only like 6 minutes between both of them leaving City West.

Routes and Timetables / Re: Route / Timetable discussion

I have noticed that route 60/160 is very frequent for a short period during the afternoon; there are two southbound services departing Woden Bus Station within the space of five minutes. These two services are at 6:03pm and 6:08pm; the first trip is a 60 commencing at Woden Bus Station, the following is a 160 commencing from City West Bus Station at 5:45pm.

I am proposing that in the new network, that whilst I am aware that the route will start at Woden Bus Station, the 6:03pm should be removed; the 6:08pm trip should be increased to an articulated bus, this will help meet capacity requirements.
