Service changes 13th May 2012

O From the 13th May (today), there will be some changes to some bus services serving Hillarys Boat Harbour, Scarborough Beach, Kalamunda and Great Eastern Highway. There is good news and bad news.
The good news - There's an extra 408 trip to Glendalough (from Scarborough Beach) on Saturday morning. It leaves Scarborough Beach at 7:53 and arrives at Glendalough Station at 8:17. There will also be a Whitfords Shopping Centre timing point, and while this may seem only organisational and and not physical, it is still useful, as the shopping centre is a key destination, and the timing point will help buses travel on time, as they can't leave a timing point early.
The bad news - The summer-only 456 trips (for Hillarys) that boosted the frequency on that route to 15 minutes, will be removed, and the route will only run every 30 minutes. However, the 456 isn't as used as much as some other routes, which would better deserve resources. As the trips are summer only, this change won't actually kick in for a while yet.
There will also be timing changes to 400, 408, 456, 458, 36, 40, 291, 295, 296, 299, and the 291 will be moved to the Eastern 109 timetable.
