QuoteYou're welcome to disagree, but your solution rrt is ________ ?
Quote-provide more services shoulder peak, and later connecting buses to encourage people not to rush out of work early for fear of long waits (Several people i worked with drove to work in South Brisbane because evening transport was not good enough for them if they had to stay back)-No 20 min gaps etc in peak or cr%p like that, as derwan said.-Accept higher levels of crowding, and order new trains with seating like the Perth A sets.
QuoteGC line was mentioned as being unacceptable for standing, but it's not that crowded as its made out to be anyway.
Quote from: Arnz on June 25, 2012, 19:28:03 PMFrom my last experience riding on the GC express in peak, most standees on the GC train empty out by Beenleigh (or Loganlea for the few peak trains that stop there). Past Beenleigh from what I've experienced the last trip I've taken down there is that the train still had a fully seated load, but a few backward facing seats available (some people still decide to stand despite the backward facing seats, as every line experiences). IMO it's way blown out of proportion, considering some Caboolture trains (including the few that are nicknamed the 'Slow Express' that continue to Nambour) has crush loads up till Narangba (as been documented by HTG and FF iirc). Sure some GC trains have crush loads to/from Beenleigh, but that is to be expected (IMO the peak GC trains need more stops on the outer Beenleigh line to maximise the dual track capacity between Kuraby and Beenleigh).
QuoteAdvertise each peak service train capacity, when and where are they full and how much. As others have just said, some are only at crush load for short sections. Survey's and Go-card.
