[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

They really should make a bus stop at the station, a one way road (loop) could easily be built. Enter Flinders Drive, left onto the service road, left at the weird roundabout, left after the station and left back onto Main South Road. If the grade is too steep you could make a turn around area next...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

I just sent DPTI some feedback on the proposed changes to the Adelaide bus network. First the positive stuff......loved the route numbering simplification. Now what I perceive as poorly thought ideas.... I said that replacing 5 eastern suburb routes (140, 142, 143, 147 etc) with 2 new routes (10 an...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

As mentioned with no buses going direct to the City when the new bus network commences, the Aberfoyle Park/Flagstaff Hill commuters aren't going to be happy with their new options-after arriving at FMC on a 330/X331 bus they will have quite a walk to the new Flinders Link Station, where they will ta...

That only ran a handful of trips-at least you will have an OD service to compensate.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

I hope the "G" buses stop at the new Flinders station. I had to walk from the 681 (this bus is being removed) bus stop 26B on University Drive to the main entrance, it was a 650m walk and 8 mins, the train station would be about 500m from the medical centre interchange, the govt seriously cant thin...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

What parts of Adelaide will lose public transport all together? And how many night buses have been axed? I was not looking that carefully at that, I saw a few of them had new numbers matching the daytime number. In terms of night buses, only the N40 (City to Elizabeth), N1 (City to Tea Tree Plaza v...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

I can only speak for the Aberfoyle and Blackwood areas for local buses but all of the routes in this area are near identical to the current network. The new Aberfoyle-Flinders-Marion 330 is identical to the current 320; the G22X express from Aberfoyle is now the X331 and terminates at Flinders for ...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Contracts, Service & Policy

2 very good apps that have been available for a while-"whereDaBus"(developed by a local developer-excellent and free).
The second one is "any trip"-also excellent,but there is a $4.99 if you want to save more than 3 stops-well worth the money-I use both.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

It appears that no one in DPTI/SAPTA will give a straight answer,all being very evasive?
Have just received an update from SAPTA advising that details will be released late May and now run until the end of July.

Re: Discussion: 20-Year State Infrastructure Strategy

My take on the 'Ten major projects': 1. Completion of the North-South road corridor through metropolitan Adelaide. Yes, this urgently needs planning for completion, not more private sector business cases that waste taxpayer money. Bite the bullet and follow through with the recommendations of the S...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

I rode one of the new buses last week; it was the 8am or so G21F from Aberfoyle Hub to the City, and even still had the new car smell inside. How we got one on that route I don't know. I've seen a regular few on Flagstaff Road running the Aberfoyle Hub routes across the past two months. There are c...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Also I presume the actual AdelaideMetro consultation will be out in the not too distant future given consultation starts in April - maybe next week? Was due to be released this Thursday(30/4), but what I was told when I rang the info line today, that they are still working on finalising the plans f...
