[quote=bevans]Hi [url=/user/10042][b]@dbowen[/b] thanks for your insight. Do you have a view on what might be causing the accelerated wheel wear?[/quote]There's plenty of unfounded speculation around ...

If what is printed is true his conduct was negligent in the extreme.

One would think that the amount of cash a driver takes in could be the same

More likely to be larger denominations (notes instead of coins) however.

Daniel, RB, you've missed the point."When are you going to Lara?""Dunno yet. When I am done."So I can't endorse it, and, I can't NOT sell it.They know the rule, know it's unenforceable, and if I refus ...

I sell a sh*t load if tickets to Lara.Lara must be booming with these passengers!Explanation? Full fare $6.50. V Line rules allow Met travel an hour before your V Line trip to get you to Spencer Stree ...

First train out of Sunbury is at 06:57 and first arrival is at 8:27. More likely the Ministers will rock up at Diggers Rest in the morning to catch the first down train to open the extension like they ...

If anyone wishes to "bash" all of Melbourne's suburban lines in a day then Oaks Day is probably the best to do so. A frequent service runs to Flemington Racecourse and being a normal working day a ful ...

New timetable including Sunbury opening November 18th.

I think Daniel Bowen's response to this defending the indefensible. Pisel does not have a valid concern. If he doesn't endorse trams that doesn't mean that he can break the law on them. If he were con ...

I don't agree that the London system is worse, having to "pick up" your credit at a specific station is not a big deal at all. Certainly not when compared to having to buy more credit when you've alre ...

But, all I got from all my sources is that 'trains where suspended beyond Oakliegh' due to over-crowding issues.

What; Where there too many people on the platform waiting for a train at Westall?

What appeared to be missed by most of the media, but was picked up by Channel 10, was the Fairfield Metcard machines had red stickers on them flagging that they are to be removed soon to be replaced b ...

They did this with Metcard, why the surprise by Bowen that it's happening with Myki?Where did it say I was surprised?Daniel

I'm really excited about this. Services every ten minutes essentially make it a 'turn up and go' service on three key lines. Combined with $3.30 fares under myki, I think that's a really, really attr ...

No, but I'd be interested to find out how many outlets there are in the western half of the city, especially the NW area. There are a number of hotels in the NW area of the CBD, and I am not too sure  ...

What I don't know is how long it'll remain - possibly give myki a call on that?

90 days.

It can be triggered again when you touch-on. Obviously you could top up by a few dollars "on-system" to allow ...

It would be very interesting to see the patronage on those early morning Saturday services.

Indeed. My perception is that they (more-or-less) match the weekday start times because it's a throwback  ...
