A big turnaround from being on the verge of closure this time last year.

Someone realised the point of running a commuter service is to carry passengers.

Hopefully the is use of the service to maintain it. Would be great if they integrated the Smartrider card for use on this and the Australind services.

The new timetable is now available from Transwa at http://www.transwa.wa.gov.au/Default.aspx?tabid=95.

At the same time as the AvonLink upgrade, the MerredinLink will be cut back to only operate on Wednesday. However there is no new timetable for the Prospector yet to reflect the additional station stops that presumably would be needed on Monday and Friday.

According to the fine print on the back of the timetable, the requirement for booked tickets will cease on the AvonLink and onboard cash payments will be accepted. Additionally MultiRider tickets will be phased out on both the AvonLink and Australind; instead "Transwa will be introducing a new ticketing product in 2015 which will offer frequent travellers greater discounts and improved ticketing options." http://www.transwa.wa.gov.au/Default.aspx?tabid=118&ArticleID=732

[/QUOTE] Hopefully it's a SmartRider style system or possibly even extending the current system to cover TransWA services
