Notes re Shuttles: Side destination usually 'S' for shuttle, but perhaps 'secret' is more appropriate - the services don't show up in bus books, on 'Real Time' panels, bollard departure listings, and platform guidance and TTs at bus Interchanges; except for a small placard with TT at actual departure platform. No wonder passenger loadings are sparse. Detail though is to be found on TC web site.

At Cohen St Interchange, platform 1 is used. You would have to know to go to it. From the street it looks unused with no defined pedestrian route. This service is the only opportunity to board a public (as opposed to school) service at this platform.

It is only possible to ride both Shuttles on the same day Wed-Fri incl.

I thought this was going to be on-demand, so how does round-trip sole passenger work? Sounds like a waste.
Also I can find any details other than 'details will be available by commencement of the network' on the website, so can you provide a link?

I don't seem to be able to provide a direct link. Go to transport.act.gov.au, find and select 'Getting around' then 'Timetables' then 'Routes by number'. The routes are grouped by Rapid, Peak, SHUTTLE, Regular and School. Select in shuttle for more detail.
Just as normal, line up at stop and wait for bus. Trip is free (a driver said free because routing not loaded into MyWay system ???).
PS Belconnen Interchange outbound is now Plat 2 not 1.

Re-reading your post, I didn't answer this properly. The key is, that as presently implemented, they are not 'on demand'. They are ordinary timetabled services, but with rather limited information (except on the TC web site) compared with other regular services.

Notes:- Interesting route 18 outbound trip from Gungahlin to transfer to Light Rail at Epic and Racecourse.
- Reaching Cate Crace St appeared to take left turn by mistake. Continued back to The Valley Ave via Efkarpidis St and Hinder St.
- Mapleton Ave is closed East of Flemington Rd, so diverted Flemingtonh Rd, Nullabor Ave and Wimmera St back to Mapleton Ave.
- Included Bimberi diversion, as per timetable, after driver was alerted by a passenger when the right turn lane was selected in Sandford St at Flemington Rd.
- Continued to Randwick Rd as per the route change introduced from last Sat 6th July.

Note: Approaching Eloura St there was a horn blast and very severe brake application to a full stop. After easing forward into Eloura St Station, the driver came back through the vehicle to check that the 'emergency braking' had not caused any injuries. The stop was that severe. Fortunately, no one had fallen or come off a seat. I didn't see what the problem was, but from the stopped position, I would speculate that a pedestrian had obliviously walked in front.
