Spreadsheet > https://backontrack.org/docs/rti/PTdata/SunnyCoast_outer.ods



Overall reduction of 5.1% from FY 12/13 to FY 16/17, with main component of 3.6% as #railfail impacts (FY 15/16 > FY 16/17) and unreliability takes it toll.

Sad outcome, but not surprising considering the issues on the line.

Could the temporary platforms have anything to do with some of those?
Do I really need to clarify?
Sarcasm and rhetorical questions don't translate perfectly into written form, do they?

 I did look at that.
I found no firm correlation to support their impact.
Some up, some down.
The temporary seven platforms are located at Mooloolah, Eudlo, Palmwoods, Woombye, Eumundi, Pomona and Cooran

My guess going by Nambours sharp drop would be change of employment and services due to the ongoing opening of the Sunshine Coast university hospital and its facilities. If so expect to see a sharp decrease of Nambour even further as it only opened mid way through 2017.

Thanks FF.  A ' labor ' of love.  Has taken a fair effort over the weekend, but hey keeps me busy!   :P

Good to see a few members chipping in with some of the bus stuff.  A lot of work there remains.  As we say in the Royal Australian Army Medical Corps, motto - Paulatim ( Little by little).   :bna:

Yes, I believe that would have played a large part in it.
I concur with your conclusion

Could the drop in Yandina numbers be attributed to the proximity of Nambour station, with a much higher frequency.  You can get a park at Nambour much more easily these days because Nambour Hospital has scaled back following the opening of the new Tertiary Hospital at Kawana.  Staff (and those visiting patients) used to use the station car park due to parking restrictions around the Nambour Hospital, just up the road from the station.
