Quote from: triumph on April 17, 2019, 11:54:18 pmDo hope someone for the historical record can record fleet identities for first LRV carrying balloted passengers tomorrow.AND first public trip from EACH end on Sat.(Dammit, I will be away so can't.)
Quote from: Busnerd on April 18, 2019, 11:33:40 amAll trips will commence at the same time on both days so there won't be a "first vehicle" there will be 6 or more departing at the same time.
Quote from: Barry Drive(BTW, I don't see the trial passenger run as significant, historically speaking. There have been many tests and "special" runs before now - this is just another.)
Quote from: Buzz Killington on April 18, 2019, 12:59:09 pmNot sure how many were used for the ballot today, but I saw 014 on a video.

Quote from: Toyota Camry on April 25, 2019, 07:31:57 amI am curious as to the reason why you were not impressed; personally I suggest that you should have travelled the entire route to Gungahlin Place, that would have given you a larger sample of the route to conduct an assessment based upon.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on April 25, 2019, 08:42:15 amIt wouldn't have, cause I was riding to try out the tram not the journey, and I didn't have the time to go the full way to see how much more disgusting Gungahlin has turned over the past few years, was bad enough last time I went there, esp now that it's plaguing Tuggeranong and Woden, see enough of it...

Quote from: Busnerd on April 29, 2019, 07:37:52 am...although I have heard that Transit Graphics expressed interest in making new/better maps that actually have bus information, not just an icon with a bus and no further information.
Quote from: Busnerd on December 12, 2018, 07:40:09 amI will agree with ajw373, the only time I see them crossing the median is usually at an intersection, and considering LRV's will be travelling at 70km/h unencumbered, I'm not sure that emergency vehicles would just drive into the corridor without letting the light rail operations know they're doing so, I'm sure it'd be quite the shock to see a vehicle pull on to the tracks in front of a tram at full speed, that said I wouldn't discount it, they drive on tracks in other cities so I guess we wait and see.
