Quote from: ACTbusspotter on November 19, 2011, 10:58:30 amJust the Media Release at this stage. Despite it saying more information can be found at Transport for Canberra, there's nothing there yet.
Quote from: Kramden on November 19, 2011, 08:59:45 amThere's an article in this morning's CT singing the praises of "Nightrider". One line had me choking on my Weet Bix. It states: "Each service will have CCTV facilities to ensure passenger safety".What...do the lenses double as tranquiliser guns? Imagine some asshole, with a tendency towards violent outbursts when off his chops, running amok and in the confines of a bus. As if a camera is going so make him think twice in that condition. I also wonder if the lads in the re-fueling bay will get bonus pay for each 'defoulment' they have to deal with.Great idea though: overtime for night owl drivers, cheap as chips for the punters and keeps the drunks off the roads. Win win. Err, maybe not if you're a cabbie.
Quote from: smitho on November 18, 2011, 10:47:18 pm....I think its comparable with ACTION Nightrider frequency in 2009, 08, 07...
Quote from: Bus 400 on December 06, 2011, 07:10:33 pmAn advertisement was shown on WIN TV tonight during the news for Nightrider. Features an animated young lady going to Platform 7 on the City & boarding a bus to the nearest place to home.
Quote from: Kramden on December 07, 2011, 01:00:38 amI love that description 400: 'animated young lady'. Is that code for some wasted skank making a scene while staggering from ICBM to Platform 7?
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on December 08, 2011, 03:12:07 pmNo, he meant it literally.
Quote from: Kramden on December 08, 2011, 03:51:57 pmI've not seen the TV ad. So, the lady in question is a cartoon?
Quote from: Bus 400 on December 08, 2011, 05:35:05 pmYeah she is.Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
Quote from: Buzz Killington on January 01, 2012, 09:05:35 pmA new poll has been added to the homepage at actbus.net - do you think Nightrider should run through January?And an article from a few days ago in the CT: http://www.canberratimes.com.au/news/local/news/general/revellers-warm-to-nightrider-services/2405644.aspx
Quote from: particleman on January 06, 2012, 04:54:15 pmI took the NightRider home a few weeks ago (last time I went out ), and I'm pretty pleased about the service. However, I was disappointed that it's not year-round - I'm sure there are quite a few people (particularly uni students) who would make use of the service after their piss-ups.
