« on: July 28, 2014, 09:45:34 AM »
BT driver indicated Go Card (cubic) appliances didn't start up this morning. All depos impacted. Happened last week too during back to school. Free travel this morning. Not just confined to BT aparhently.

Just jumped on another Carina depot bus and Cubic is online. Must depend on how early the bus leaves the depot fir the batch load. Translink previously has people perform 3am depot initializations but discontinued that practice.

Don't thank me... Thank the Carina driver! An outbound Wynnum Road service was rear ended at a stop this morning. Norman Park required to towage. Slip lanes definately required on that streach, ample land reserved. BUZ would reduce the 400m stop pattern too.

Nothing on either the Sherwood or Toowong buses - travelled initially at 8:45am (Sherwood bus) and have been on and off buses since then.
Is it really that hard to run frequent, reliable public transport?

Hmm may be firmware or depot specific. 9am carina service was out if service but 9:20 carina continuing journey was touching fine.

From what I've seen over Facebook it was a problem which occurred between around 9am and 10-10:30am this morning, but did occur across all depots. Strange...
