Note: Multicultural event diversions: Rte 300 dept City Interchange turning right into London Circuit, thence left into Northbourne Ave (London Circ was barricaded at Northbourne Ave except for the left turn movement) and direct to Commonwealth Ave;  rte 938 exited Commonwealth Ave as usual, thence clockwise round London Circuit to City Interchange, which involved opening a barricade in London Circuit immediately after crossing Northbourne Ave. (It appears the barricade was attended and opened and shut for each bus service.)

* Not many rides, but bus 575 turned up on 2 services used on same day. In 3 years a bus reappearing on a later service on the same day has happened to me 18 times. Freakishly, the preceding occasion  on 10th March also involved bus 575!

577 (953) Only passenger, 12 min early on return, no next stop information on board, driver navigation challenging as no driver's route display, Plat 4 Gungahlin no service/timetable information. (Just when it is most needed for a brand new route, ACTION is still to provide the routine customer information.)

At least times were up at the 2 of the stops in Moncrieff, with a new design

It may have been a 577 specific issue? The one bus I tried to track yesterday was bus 577 on route 966 and while it had realtime, for some reason it wasn't transmitting vehicle location on tripmate or cbrbus.

There are some problems with all real time mobile apps at present for the majority of routes.

# The median gap in Northbourne Ave at Murdoch St (normally used by rte 7 leaving Dickson Interchange to double back along Northbourne Ave towards Belconnen) had just been apparently unexpectedly barricaded off. Driver continued via Morphett, Challis and Antill Sts to resume normal route in Mouat St and reported details to base.

It's a reasonable assumption. (Which is another way of saying "I wondered the same when I saw 665 in service".) But there haven't been any sightings either way - unlike 666 which is clearly visible from Coulter Dr at the back of Belconnen Depot (not in service).

Anyway, unless proven otherwise, 664 is listed as in service on the Fleet Summary.
