Adelaide Metro items of interest

Advertiser --> Public transport users fined for feet on seats, fare dodging, graffiti, offensive behaviour and smoking

Quote
PASSENGERS who make themselves at home on public transport have been fined more than $7000 for putting their feet on seats.

There were 45 fines of $165 for this offence among the more than 2500 fines issued to public transport passengers last financial year.

Among the other crimes punished with on-the-spot fines were fare dodging, graffiti, offensive behaviour and smoking at bus shelters, latest police figures show.

Last financial year’s fine figure of 2523 was, however, a massive decrease on the 6848 fines issued in the previous 12 months.

Passengers putting feet on seats drew the ire of several train travellers when a picture of mud left on a seat by dirty shoes was posted on the Noarlunga Line Commuters Facebook page.

Comments posted by passengers included “yuk’’ and I “get really annoyed with people needing to put there (sic) feet on the seats.

Another commuter posted: “Some people who travel on the public trains treat them like a toilet leaving behind all their mess that just needs never to be seen by anyone else!’’

People for Public Transport president Thanasis Avramis welcomed the feet on seat fines because he said it was an issue that peeved other passengers.

“It seems fair enough to fine people who do that,’’ he said.

He was also pleased to see the fall in total fines issued across the Adelaide Metro network.

“I imagine things have improved because I can’t imagine the fall is due to offenders becoming cleverer at avoiding fines,’’ he said.

The fines fall was the result of a crackdown on passengers behaving badly, the Transport Department said.

“A sustained campaign against fare evaders on Adelaide’s public transport is paying off with a fall in the number of expiation notices issued during 2015/16,’’ a department spokeswoman said.

“Our public awareness campaign ‘FarePlayer’ and a very strong focus on fare evaders and anti-social behaviour is having an impact.’’

However, the spokeswoman admitted that “fare evasion rates are still too high’’ robbed the public transport system of money to “spend on extra services and new infrastructure’’.

“We take fare evasion extremely seriously and will continue to look at putting in new and innovative measures to ensure that it is kept to an absolute minimum,’’ she said.

“One of these strategies will be the introduction of ticket barriers and increased CCTV at Salisbury and Noarlunga train stations.’’

The fare evasion crackdown included “checking more tickets, more often and having officers patrol the network in uniform and plain clothes,’’ she said.

There were 120 “revenue protection operations’’ conducted financial year with officers checking more than 442,000 tickets.

Widespread (entire state) blackout for SA.  A HV transmission tower fell in strong winds/storms and by a domino effect entire state out.

Interestingly diesel trains still operating, sparks not of course.  Buses being diverted from normal routes to railway stations to pick up pax stranded by electricity failure.

Adelaide Now --> Massive blackout across South Australia as storm sweeps across state

Quote
THE entire state has lost all power in the midst of today’s big storm.

Traffic lights are down, roads are in chaos and building fire alarms are blaring across the city.

The operators of SA’s high-voltage power network, ElectraNet, are in an emergency meeting to determine the cause of the unprecedented electricity collapse and plot a solution.

There is no estimated time when power will be restored but it is understood authorities expect the blackout to last at least four to eight hours.

The cause is believed to be a Mid North high-voltage transmission tower toppling in the severe weather. This created a domino effect, shutting down the state ...

Messenger --> Adelaide Metro bus commuters will soon be able to enter and validate Metrocards at rear doors

Quote
O-BAHN commuters will soon be able to enter and validate their Metrocards at the middle and rear doors of buses.

The idea is to speed up boarding times as the new O-Bahn tunnel makes the service more popular.

Validation machines started appearing on buses over the past month with a sign saying, “Exciting travel change coming soon!”

A Transport Department spokeswoman said they would become active when the $160 million tunnel from Grenfell St to Hackney Rd opened “later this year”.

They will not appear on other routes “for now”.

“This may be re-evaluated at a later date,” she said.

Extra ticket inspectors will be deployed to explain the new procedure and catch fare evaders.

Their gates are interesting - they don't actually deduct your fare, just let you into the paid-up area of the platform.  You still need to touch on inside the train.

Yep all ticketing validation is onboard all modes in SA. Not entirely sure regarding the gates. Once touched it allows 2 hours seemless travel. It does allow for touch off data which is good for improving services and timetable adjustments.

Adelaide Now --> Adelaide public transport most convenient in the nation, but our usage lags behind other capitals

Quote
ADELAIDE has the most convenient public transport in the country but fewer people use it to get to work than in Australia’s other major cities, new data reveals.

Australia’s most comprehensive city rankings show a third of Adelaide homes are within 400m of a frequently serviced public transport stop.

It means Adelaide has the best public transport accessibility of 22 cities across the country. Nationally one in five houses are close to public transport.

Yet just 8.7 per cent of Adelaideans use public transport to commute, a lower rate than Sydney (22.7), Western Sydney (12.3), Melbourne (15.5), Brisbane (11.4) and Perth (10.2).

The data was collected and analysed by the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet to provide a comprehensive portrait of our biggest cities.

Congestion on Adelaide roads was not as bad as other major cities, but in peak hour travels times rise by 45 per cent.

Cities Assistant Minister Angus Taylor said the data also tracked for the first time how cities were going on the “30-minute city” goal the Government was working toward.

While Adelaide ranked 14th, with 78 per cent of people able to drive to work within 30 minutes, the result was much better than other capital cities.

In Sydney and Melbourne about 40 per cent of motorists were stuck in their cars longer than half an hour.

Cities were also ranked on other key measures including jobs, housing and innovation.

Adelaide’s performance was particularly weak on youth unemployment, third highest at 16.4 per cent. The average was 11.9 per cent.

Mr Taylor said: “It’s not a matter of one city being better than another, it’s a matter of them having different attributes and therefore different challenges and opportunities that need to be addressed.

“Customising solutions for individual cities is crucial and a national government has to be part of that.”

Details for each city are at http://smart-cities.dashboard.gov.au

The Advertiser --> Traffic congestion forcing more Adelaide drivers to catch public transport or ride a bike to work

Quote
TRAFFIC congestion is forcing Adelaide drivers to reconsider how they get to work, despite historic reluctance to use public transport.

More than 60 per cent of Adelaide commuters would be willing to change their travelling habits to help ease road congestion and 53 per cent had already considered doing so, according to a report on traffic in Australia’s five largest cities.

With 400,000 cars on the road in a growing city, more Adelaide workers are considering taking public transport, cycling or changing their work times to avoid peak hours.

Almost 79 per cent of Adelaide commuters drive to work — the highest rate in the five big cities, according to the report for mapping and traffic data company HERE Technologies.

HERE Technologies Oceania product management and operations head Sunny Wijewardana said the number of Adelaide residents shunning public transport in favour of driving was “staggering”.

“There is a lot of investment going into Adelaide’s public transport but ... only 16 per cent of the people that we interviewed actually commute by bus, train or tram and that is the lowest out of any major cities that we looked at,’’ he said.

The study found residents of some suburbs could get to work quicker if they left the car at home. For example, people near Edinburgh North could cut a morning commute to the city from 45 minutes to 34 minutes by catching the train.

A survey undertaken for the study found one quarter of Adelaide drivers would be willing to use public transport more often and a similar number were interested in working flexible hours.

Nearly one in five would be willing to drive to a transport hub and then catch a train, tram or bus and 9 per cent would like to cycle.

Almost 10 per cent of Adelaide drivers used real-time traffic updates before deciding how to get to work or choosing a driving route.

Transport and Infrastructure Minister Stephen Mullighan said public transport use was growing in SA.

“Over the past five years we have seen a huge increase in the number of South Australians using public transport, with over 74 million journeys taken last financial year,’’ he said.

“We are investing in projects like the electrification of the Gawler line ... to encourage even more.”

I am really happy that the Gawler line is finally going to be fully sparked.  Roads only Tony (Abbott) stopped it. 

Better late than never ..  :-t

This is a photograph I took in Jan 2016 on the Gawler line showing the OHT posts in place but no wires ...
(Note also the dual gauge sleepers, it is planned to regauge the 5'3" to 4'8.5" eventually too).

The Advertiser --> Severe overcrowding on the Gawler rail line making travel too dangerous for children, people with disabilities

Quote
TRAVELLING on peak-hour trains to Adelaide’s north is too dangerous for children and people with disabilities because of severe overcrowding, commuters and a public transport advocacy group warn.

People for Public Transport wants extra carriages added to Gawler line trains.

Spokeswoman Josephine Buckhorn said overcrowding was getting so bad that people were turning to their cars.

“(It’s) not safe to have (a lot) of people on a train, it puts a lot of pressure on people with accessibility needs that can’t use the services due to overcrowding,” Ms Buckhorn said.

“It’s really about making public transport inclusive for people with disabilities.”

Frustrated commuter Darren Adams said trains were usually so full you could not squeeze anyone else on.

“The peak hour trains (to the city) are pretty much full at Elizabeth, then standing room only from Salisbury onwards,” he said.

“Sometimes it results in arguments between passengers and it must be difficult at times for pregnant and elderly people who get on at later stops.”

The Northern Weekly rode the 5.20pm Gawler express service last Wednesday. Commuters getting on in the CBD scrambled to fill the carriages and were forced to stand in the aisles shoulder-to-shoulder.

Regular commuter Ameera Dean said she had noticed trains had been getting packed a lot, which made it harder for her five-month-old son to ride.

Fellow passenger Caitlin McLean, who catches the train regularly for work, said there needed to be more trains scheduled.

“People are just piling into these trains,” she said. “If there was one ten minutes later they wouldn’t need to.”

A Transport Department spokesman said it used the whole diesel fleet in peak periods and would not be able to add more carriages until the Gawler line electrification was completed in 2020.

He said there were no complete records kept of full trains because ticketing systems showed boarding numbers only from individual stations.

But drivers reported 39 full trains between July, 2015, and June, 2017, and only one last month, he said.

Playford Mayor Glenn Docherty said northern commuters had suffered for too long.

Salisbury councillor Chad Buchanan said residents complained they could not reach the city before 9am, making them late for work.

The Advertiser --> Segways and Uber-style buses could become integral parts of Adelaide’s public transport system

Quote
SEGWAYS, EcoCaddies, Uber-style buses, ferries, ride-share bicycles and old-school trams.

Infrastructure Minister Stephan Knoll has vowed nothing is off the table as work begins on designing the best public transport system for greater Adelaide.

Almost 79 per cent of Adelaide commuters drive to work – the highest rate in the five mainland capitals – but growing congestion issues have many motorists reconsidering their commuting options.

Mr Knoll has told the Sunday Mail he wants to bring South Australia’s public transport service offering into the 21st century.

“Some new technologies are operating in other cities around Australia – and the world – with great success, delivering better service for commuters,” he said.

“If we can increase public transport patronage, it’ll help relieve traffic congestion and reduce commute times for everyone.”

Former State Government tram plans for Adelaide – including a line to The Parade, in Norwood, and an extension to North Adelaide – have been scrapped as Mr Knoll will ask the new South Australian Public Transport Authority (SAPTA) to consider anything and everything.

“Ultimately, the question we want SAPTA to answer is, how do we deliver the best, most efficient, reliable and cost-effective public transport system for South Australians?,” Mr Knoll told the Sunday Mail.

“That’s why we’re scrapping the AdelLink plan from the Infrastructure Australia list. Labor locked themselves into building an expensive tram network around metropolitan Adelaide and didn’t ask what is the best way to deliver public transport services?

“Labor had the blinkers on – they had a fixation on trams and closed themselves to other, possibly better, options.

“Now, trams may be one option as part of the broad plan but we don’t know that. There are a host of new technologies and we need to investigate them.”

He named uber-style buses, ecocaddies, segways as some of the technologies but how they could work - if at all - would be up to the authority to explore.

The important thing he said, was to have a fresh and modern look.

 A survey by HERE Technologies in February revealed more than 60 per cent of Adelaide commuters would be willing to change their travelling habits to help ease road congestion and 53 per cent had considered doing so.

“We need to recognise all forms of transport can be part of our network – point to point, rideshare, bikeshare and on demand, first mile, last mile services as well as high-capacity services,” he said.

“At the heart of it, SAPTA will be customer-focused because our public transport network relies on hundreds of thousands of customers every day to be sustainable,” he said.

“SAPTA will provide fundamental advice about the best way forward for SA’s public transport network.

“We won’t leave any stone unturned as we look to get more and more people using public transport.”

SA Council of Social Services chief executive Ross Womersley said much of the public transport system in Adelaide was organised on an arterial basis. “The public transport system is okay if you want to come in and out of the city,” he said. “But if you want to go across suburbs it is really challenging.

“The other key issue for us is that we enhance affordability and accessibility.”

Public Sector Association secretary Nev Kitchin welcomed any conversation about enhanced public transport options.

“Thousands of public sector workers use public transport each and every day and any improvements in access to transport services would advantage the public sector workforce,” he said. Mr Kitchin said with many public sector workers using the train network it was important to make it easy to get to stations including options such as making more bike lockers accessible for the growing number of cyclists.

In November, participants in the Sunday Mail’s “Your State, Your Survey” listed many issues that kept them from using public transport:

FREQUENCY and hours of operation.

BUSES, trains and trams running behind time

DRUNK, obnoxious and unruly passengers.

DIRTY vehicles.

One in five of the 3585 people who responded to the survey said they never used public transport. Statistics from last year show that SA’s major public transport provider Adelaide Metro recorded 74.8 million boardings – a 1.1 per cent drop on the 75.6 million the previous year.

Buses were the most popular mode of travel, recording 51.12 million boardings last financial year. Trains recorded 14.38 millions boardings and trams, 9.25 million boardings, during the same period.
