Re: Barossa | Oscar Seppeltsfield | 12 Levels

So McLaren Vale has the "Cube" and the now the Barossa might have the "Slug".....

Perhaps each wine region can have one modern large building acting as an "icon".

Suggestions for Clare, Adelaide Hills and Coonawarra?

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I have seen this suggestion for other cities and I am going to repeat it for Adelaide. During the coronavirus lockdown the state government should change the traffic light sequence in the CBD to speed up the tram services. Do it now whilst traffic is light and any issues can be ironed out. Perfect o...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Surprised Adelaide Metro didn't move to a "limited summer timetable" last week.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

The proposed new bus network has route No 1 running to the airport every 15 minutes during the day.

There will also be a western suburbs bus that starts at Port Adelaide and ends at the airport.

[PRO] Re: 14° South | Noarlunga Centre

Wasn't there an earlier plan to transform Noarlunga Centre into a vibrant town centre?

The whole place needs a huge make over in my opinion.....

And it should be called L14 South (Lot 14 South)......14 degrees south locates it near Katherine in the Northern Territory. :D

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

And will I still be able to put a 28 day pass on a credit card?

I presume this will work because your credit card acts a a pseudo MetroCard......but what if it doesn't work?

In Sydney they do not have transport passes, all transactions are a " one off payment".

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

Please don't get rid of MetroCard... 1) Not everybody has a credit card to use on public transport 2) Nor will banks give credit cards to every person in society....some are too young, some are too old, some are an extremely poor credit risk 3) International tourists credit cards would not necessari...

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

Its time for cash tickets to be withdrawn......permanently. Yes, let's do it now during the coronavirus epidemic. Perfect opportunity to go "cashless" public transport. Today's change is permanent. If that is the case then it is time to really ramp up the marketing of the MetroCard. Cash this year....

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

I am hoping that the Airport Go Zone will go straight down Richmond Road following the J1X route. The current airport buses constantly get stuck in the South Rd traffic, lets get them out of there. Also the proposed 60c serving West Beach......for a start lets not use any letters unless entirely nec...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Reading that last post.....why not make the 19 a 8 minute daytime frequency and then make the 20 run from Marion to Old Reynella only.

Why is the point of having 2 different bus routes?

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

And it looks like with the proposed new simplified bus numbering system the practice of Adelaide buses changing their numbers as they enter the CBD will be abandoned in favour of one number for the entire route......from end to end. And I have got to say....finally. Hopefully the new numbering syste...
