I caught that service today that departed The Gap Village to Keperra (where I then went to Ferny Grove station to check out what's changed).

Departed on time and arrived 2mins late (still considered on time) at Keperra station:

08-May-12 02:18:07 PM   Touch off   Keperra Station - 30 [BT003825]       
08-May-12 01:57:24 PM   Touch on transfer   'The Gap Village' Waterworks Road [BT004088]

Must admit, was quite a nice trip!

It's not a bad route, it is my local service and I do use it occasionally, but the operating hours make that hard to do. I don't often use it to connect with a train as the reliability tends to be pretty bad at times, but do use it to go to and from Brookside. With an increased span and better peak frequency, it could go quite well.

just moved from keperra after 2 years so glad to see the back of that service and its irregular timetables.....very scenic trips though with views to the samford valley! A couple of interesting happenings for me included a truck backing into the bus on the cnr gilston/samford (bus didnt come off too well... but my fav was when my bus caught on fire going over the hill to the gap jan 2011.....was just me and the driver...i panicked of course but the driver kept cool:) Oh and once a driver went into the first great western roundabout and went back out forgetting to stop at the bus stop:)

im now in salisbury enjoying the 120 buz (ahh the joys of 10-15min frequency)

Why do you taunt me with you new frequency?! Hell, what I would give for just a reliable 30 minute off-peak frequency to meet the trains, from 6.30am to 7pm. Wouldn't even need a higher peak frequency (though I'd prefer if it did).

I have a soft spot for the good ol' 362. I just wish it serviced Glen Retreat/Frasers Rd full time. Then I could be lazy an bus it to Brookside more often.

When I was about 12 I put in a request for the route to also service Lockrose St and Kooya Rd but apparently the traffic calming built into the new estate prevented that from ever eventuating :(

Now living on a busway feeder service.  The joys of half hourly in peak, hourly offpeak and dies at 7PM.

A piece of concrete is only as good as the service you can actually access. The core busway timetable is meaningless to me.
