Quote from: King of Buses on June 19, 2018, 02:26:37 pmThe R9 wouldn't make sense to combine, not the R10, as that would make a Watson to Belconnen and a Denman Prospect to City service a Watson to City via Belconnen and Molonglo service?
Quote from: King of Buses on June 19, 2018, 11:43:51 pmJust noticed: school services (or the few which remain) are now 4 digit route numbers. For example: 1002.School runs mostly only appear to be for the purpose of shuttling students to/from the nearest town/group centre and/or connection point to suburban routes, rather than from a school to everywhere in the surrounding region - this will NOT go down well, I imagine. It will save a lot of buses though. Not sure if we have enough artics to handle that though (unless they run multiples of the same service with rigids, where needed). I'm sure they'd have thought about such things though...
Quote from: King of Buses on June 19, 2018, 02:26:37 pmI'm not certain what they plan on doing with route 56, as I don't think it needs to go to Fyshwick at all hours of the day.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on June 20, 2018, 02:50:17 amAlso, what's the FRC route? Can't seem to find anywhere that explains what it is.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on June 20, 2018, 02:50:17 amBut back to late services though... There are many things to do in Fyshwick, some involving educational things which is always a surprise to me when I see those sorts of things in an industrial suburb like Fyshwick. The issue with those is they're on late in the evening
Quote from: Busfanatic101 on June 20, 2018, 09:16:26 amFuture Rapid Corridor. I personally can't see what they're waiting for, doesn't need to be a rapid but would be a good connection to have from Weston Creek/Molonglo to Belco.
Quote from: Busfanatic101 on June 21, 2018, 10:05:03 amWhat is this alternative route you suggest? Coppins Crossing connects Denman prospect to belco
Quote from: King of Buses on June 19, 2018, 02:26:37 pmI reckon the R7 could be extended to Tuggeranong via Namatjira Dr, and the 70/71 remain the same or similar to existing routes 60/62, with connections on Sulwood Dr and Drakeford Dr for travel to Cooleman Court
Quote from: ajw373 on June 24, 2018, 05:28:59 pmRE the R10 and going to Belconnen vi the FRC. Well that is exactly the plan, FRC stands for Future Rapid Connection so yes it will go to belco.
Quote from: Busfanatic101 on June 24, 2018, 06:53:57 pmHe said Belco to Woden. So not "exactly", and not suggesting that the R10 should/will extend to belco
Quote from: ajw373 on June 27, 2018, 08:32:16 amThe frequencies are a bit ambiguous. I was looking at the Gungahlin loops weekday and it says every 20 minutes in peak. But wasn't sure if that was each direction or in total. Then looked at a non loop and it said 30 minutes in the peak which is plain silly foba peak hour service.
Quote from: Busfanatic101 on June 27, 2018, 09:25:53 amIt would be each way, not total. There would be no way they have 2 hourly in total on weekends.
Quote from: Northside on June 28, 2018, 01:59:04 pmWhy is everyone struggling over the concept of loop routes? Have the previous networks really been that bad to have caused permanent damage!?
Quote from: Northside on June 28, 2018, 02:33:12 pmSend the 66 from Manuka via Canberra Cct to National cct, then via Federation mall and around to COmm Ave - you can then change the 57/58 to use the COmm ave ramp to Parliament house - saving time on all 3 routes.
Quote from: vnguyen on July 07, 2018, 12:22:00 amWhy send a Weston loop service from Manuka? I think you meant the 56.
Quote from: Barry DriveCertainly not more stops.
Quote from: Northside on July 13, 2018, 12:25:51 pmWhat I want to figure out is what's happening to the extra bus-kilometres/bus-hours saved by the light rail. Currently there are 20 red-rapid services arriving between 8 and 9am in the morning peak on an approximately 40 min journey. So that's over 13 bus-hours saved just there. Then include all the 5# and 3# buses on the remainder of the route and you have a heap of extra bus-hours to spread around the network. I can't see that all these hours are being used in the new network, it seems like these hours have just been dropped and the new network created from the remainder of the existing network. This is pretty disappointing if that's the case.
Quote from: triumph on July 12, 2018, 01:03:35 amRoute 101. At a consultation at the Belconnen Library the facilitators said that route was a separate function and implied it would continue. But the Canberra Times yesterday reports (with routes 81 and 101 mixed up) otherwise. In or out?

Quote from: ajw373 on July 13, 2018, 01:02:32 pmWithout a detailed timetable how can you tell where bus hours are or aren't being used?
QuoteAs you mention the red rapid has about 20 buses in one hour in the peak many that I see on northborne have the bus full sign up to be replaced by 10 light rail services. Plus some North Canberra buses will feed Dickson and onto light rail. Capacity wise probably needs 15 light rail carriage worth an hour to carry the same number of people or share the love and keep some express buses. The best answer would be for some of the suburbs in west Gungahlin like Casey, Taylor, Nicholas to have. a direct service via the Barton highway.
