O-Bahn upgrade

When: From Friday 26 May 2017

Your O-Bahn experience is evolving!

The iconic Adelaide O-Bahn guided Busway, originally constructed in 1984, is being upgraded with an underground tunnel extension from Gilberton into the city, due to open in late 2017.

And then there's the $15 million to upgrade Park'n'Ride facilities at Klemzig and Tea Tree Plaza Interchanges announced in the Budget. 

So what else is happening along the O-Bahn?

To further enhance the full travel experience, a number of O-Bahn passenger related initiatives have been identified and are in development. These initiatives have been recognised as positively affecting customer experience through information and behaviour changes that correlate with the corridor expansion to provide a world-class travel experience for our valued O-Bahn commuters.

The first of the new O-Bahn initiatives include:

We're starting with the basics

The three O-Bahn interchanges - Tea Tree Plaza, Paradise and Klemzig - are getting a wash and fresh coat of painted. This work started on Monday 15 May and will run through until mid to late June.

New way-finding signage at every interchange

From valuable customers feedback as well as ongoing discussion with transport workers such as drivers and security personnel at the interchanges, as well as accessibility action groups, these cleaning and painting works are making way for new way-finding and signage to be installed at each interchange to assist you in easily finding where your bus will depart, as well point you to ticket machines, toilets, parking and more. These new signs will be installed at each interchange during June 2017. See a sample of a signs below - lighter, brighter, easier to read and see from a distance.

Quick boarding at all doors

With predictions of faster boarding times, rear door validators are being installed across the O-Bahn bus fleet to allow commuters to lawfully board their service and validate their metroCARD at any door.

So much easier during crowded peak travel times!

The front entrance of each bus will remain the best option for commuters who have accessibility issues and passengers needing to purchase a ticket to travel.

Rear door validators will come into operation from late 2017.
