Quote from: PTCBR Public Transport Association of CanberraTransport Minister Meegan Fitzharris MLA just announced a seven day bus network in 2018, in the Assembly 👍
Quote from: Busnerd on October 26, 2017, 03:38:53 pmbut it would finally mean the end of those horrible loops after 12 years of them running.
QuoteCanberrans say they'll walk farther for faster, more frequent buses
Rapid buses 7 days a week - every 15 minutes on weekdays and every 30 minutes on weekends. Work is continuing on our integrated transport network for #CBR. The next stage of consultation will take place in May before the new network is introduced. w/ @Transport_CBR pic.twitter.com/Nq9Sa774Hx— Chris Steel (@ChrisSteelMLA) April 19, 2018

Quote from: Busfanatic101The is nothing more frustrating than only being able to arrive at a destination 30 mins early or late than you need to be - people see that as a waste of time
Quote from: King of BusesThe main issue I see is... route duplication in the current network... poor route timings and spacing. Fix that
Quote from: Barry Drive on April 21, 2018, 03:39:01 pmSo, what next? Where is the fat in the current suburban route network? I can't think of many areas which would result in longer walking distances but faster journeys (not significantly faster anyway). But here's a few possibilities: Bingley Cres, Fraser (just run Daley Cr) Macrossan Cres, Latham consolidate services to Higgins Bruce - Fern Hill & CIT Cossington Smith Cr, Lyneham consolidate Lyneham Shops services streamline Route 7 equivalent through Braddon reduce service to Duntroon & ADFA - will depend on what happens with Route 11 Livingston Av, Kambah run only one side of Newman-Morris Cct, Oxley Bugden Av, Gowrie Jim Pike / Callaway, GordonHave I missed any?

Quote from: Toyota Camry on June 18, 2018, 09:41:43 pmIn my opinion, there will be a lot of people that will switch to driving, either to a park and ride or the whole way to Civic, with the loss of Xpresso services; many of the public servants using Xpressos will not be interested in taking a local bus to a bus station then changing buses when it takes 20 minutes longer than their previous direct service; or 30 minutes longer than driving.
Quote from: Busfanatic101 on June 18, 2018, 10:07:26 pmAny examples of where it might take 20 minutes extra due to the loss of an Xpresso?
QuoteAll Xpressos to be removed.

Quote from: Busfanatic101 on June 18, 2018, 02:41:08 pmI note 101 also seems to have disappeared, along with 'route 3' through ANU.
Quote from: vnguyen on June 19, 2018, 11:17:14 amI'm a missing something here or is R10 going to be a rapid loop service from the city? I don't see any terminus at a Denman Prospect.
Quote from: Transport Canberra Facebook commentCanberrans have told us that they prefer more frequent, flexible and reliable journeys. In order to provide higher frequency on local and Rapid Routes, all Xpresso routes will be discontinued in the new network. This will make travel to town centres and other key locations more frequent, where connections can be made to the Rapid Network. By providing an all-day network instead of a peak focused network, the same journey can be made throughout the day. If you take public transport to work at 8am and need to get home earlier than usual, you can make that same journey home at any time. It means you will not have to rely on a single bus service to make your journey, with more options available across the day.Many of Canberra's Park and Ride facilities will also be serviced by frequent all day bus services giving you more flexible travel choicesWe would encourage you to provide feedback through the Your Say page to assist with the planning of the New Network.

Quote from: Bus 400 on June 18, 2018, 10:39:33 pmYoundo have people from Gold Creek/Nicholls who want to go to Belconnen or people that work in Mitchell & want to go to the City will now be forced to go into Gungahlin in the opposite direction & change.How many people from Denman Prospect want to go to the Citt at 09:15, 9:30 & 09:45 & same goes for people from Cooleman Court? Probably 4 people each. While it has been noted all ready full buses are being cut in the Belconnen to City corridor & more people are being forced into this corridor. I think my rant is over for now, now to put forward some changes.
Quote from: Barry Drive on June 19, 2018, 10:15:20 amLast time they did public consultation, they re-instated services to Moonlight Av, Fawkner St and the Railway Station (correct me if I'm wrong on that one) as well as the 732. Why have they not learned from that?
Quote from: vnguyen on June 19, 2018, 11:24:32 amIt was be much easier to combine R9 and R10 together and make R10 a Tuggeranong to Belcomen rapid via the Tuggeranong Parkway.
