I've been riding all night on the 380 bus! It's kool!What does everyone think of the 12-5am transport where they live?
I personally am extremely happy with the 380 bus... frequency of 6-15mins until 3am and then every 1/2 hour till morning
I feel so lucky to never have to pay for a taxi to get home
They operate both ways though right? Most of Brisbane's nightlink buses and all nightlink trains only run outbound.the late night buses in Adelaide are terrible, i either try to make the last train at 11;50 or crash at someone's place for the nite. The late nite buses only work on fridays and saturdays after 12 and only one bus every hour. It could be more frequent but i doubt there is really a demand for it, there could however be a demand for late nite buses during the week.
They usually add extra services on weekends. I know they do that for the Cronulla and Sutherland Services.Nightride for my area in Sydney is okay when heading from the city (haven't gone other way). The buses on weekends are very infrequent at 1bph compared to some other routes that have 2-3bph. The trip takes only takes 15 minutes longer than the train trip does and is about an hour and 15 minutes.
The early buses are a pain though. The first 2 buses are almost always full on Saturdays and end up rejecting people at the first stop. If you aren't able to get on the bus before the seats full then you usually have to stand up for more than 50 minutes until the bus almost empties out at Liverpool.
