Updates to Radio Frequencies for Buses

Post by 6stbase » Sun Oct 23, 2016 3:02 pm

Hi all,

Thought it would be worth firing up my updated list for Perth's Bus network.

Swan Transit#:

Southern River 474.7500
Beckenham, Canning Vale: 473.2500
Circle Route*: 472.7500
Karrinyup, Beenyup: 470.3750
Ellenbrook, Midvale, Mundaring: 470.6750
Ellenbrook, Midvale, Mundaring**: 472.9750
North Fremantle, Shenton Park: 473.6750


PATH Transit:

Kalamunda, Welshpool 490.9000
Kalamunda, Welshpool*** 505.1750
Bayswater, Malaga 490.4500


Transdev WA##:

OCC South (South of Secret Harbour) {ALL Buses operating SOUTH of the CBD contact base on this channel} 472.3500
OCC South {ALL Buses operating SOUTH of the CBD contact base on this channel} 473.8000
Rockingham Depot Yardman 473.8500
Palmyra Depot Yardman 472.2500
Joondalup, Wangara and Nowergup Depot Yardmen 472.7750
OCC North {ALL Buses operating NORTH of the CBD contact base on this channel} 490.5000
OCC North (North of Currumbine) {ALL Buses operating NORTH of the CBD contact base on this channel} 490.9750

Busport Control on 473.075.



Key:

# Buses will be heard calling "6ST". This is the callsign for Swan Transit.
## Buses will be heard calling "OCC". This is the callsign for base.

* Shared by all companies
** East of Greemount

Happy scanning everyone :)
*** East of Forrestfield
6ST Base is clear, is there a mobile calling on this channel?

Nothing for the PTA at that frequency, might be something what's the word mirrored or another word I'm forgetting. What did they say?
"VKI, NJ050 will you be attending the job?"
"Negative VKI, my desk is bolted to the floor".

Transdev are currently in the process of changing over to Motorola dmr Perth cats, Mandurah and Rockingham have already gone over with Fremantle and Joondalup rolling out over the next month
path transit are also rumered to move to the same system if the supplier wins the contract

DMR is pretty simple to monitor. Either with an SDR, DMR scanner or a commercial DMR unit and a couple of spare hours to set it up.

i have been listening to there new system and to be honest its not worth listening to anymore as there's no bus to bus talk groups they are using a private one on one channel back to occ the only chatter you do hear is occ doing a all call for extra shifts and depo mechanics asking what row to put the bus on.
it also appears if the rollout of transdev and path transit are a success they will roll the entire transperth bus fleet on the same system
