[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

None of the toll road operators wants to do it in Adelaide because there's no profit in it, words to me from a friend involved in the "Is it a bridge, a trench, or a tunnel?" process with DPTI and the government. The reason the transport industry are in favour of tolls is the exact reason why they w...

I'd like for live GPS tracking of public transport to actually work for more than 1 in 40 vehicles
Really? I find they work 95% of the time.
O Bahn buses sure, but nothing else I catch ever does. Although to be fair with no football this season, I've caught a train once all year.

Re: News & Discussion: Low/Mid-Rise CBD Development

Producers has been closed since the owner was arrested two and a half years ago Is it heritage listed? Don't see any future for it until after it's sold and most likely renovated Sent from my SM-J730G using Tapatalk Yeah, that's my point. If this development were of a larger scale we might have see...

And having some students use a railway station twice a day.....is that enough to justify its existence?
It's the sole reason Mile End stays open, and Marion not only stays open but received notable upgrade works during electrification.

Private schools have swing.

Upmarket for many students is buying the fancier brand of instant ramen for 80 cents a packet instead of the 40 cent ones, it's all relative

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.

So are the Mattress King and those old sawtooths going to be demolished too, or is the whole project curving around that estate?

Very much modelled on a wine decanter. I think its bold and beautiful and should be built.

Surprised Adelaide Metro didn't move to a "limited summer timetable" last week.
Too many workers still relying on the buses to get to their jobs for them to do that without the Fed sacking up and ordering the overdue shutdown

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Another question, with the G20/21/22 gone, will the N21 still exist? Night moves is the only public transport to the south east that doesn't involve selling a kidney to pay for a taxi or an uber. I'm already annoyed that it doesn't exist on the more useful to me Friday nights, deleting it from Satur...
