Photos – Metrobus March

Last year, Transport NSW Blog ran a widely popular series outlining the operations of all of the different Metrobus branded bus services operating across Sydney. Whilst this year we haven’t celebrated “Metrobus March” as it was dubbed by our readers last year, we have gone out and collected photos of all of the Metrobus routes in action across Sydney this month.

In 2019 we are really going to try and push for our community to get involved in these posts. It would be just a few seconds once a month to take a photo of that bus or train or ferry that we all know you are catching. Please send your photos through either via email or one of our social channels to be included. They don’t need to be professional quality, just of Public Transport or Aviation. All photos will be attributed and we can even put your social handles so our viewers can find you.

Photos – September 2018

We always get requests to see more photos from across the Sydney transport network here on the blog. Every month we are out and about taking hundreds of photos but very few of them ever actually make it the whole way from our cameras to the blog. To showcase some of these photos, we are proposing that we share some of our favourite photos with you at the end of each month. This way, our photos don’t go to waste and you get to see parts of the network that would otherwise be unknown to you.

One Year of Transport NSW Blog

One year ago, I set up this little blog called Transport NSW Blog to share my love of Transport with my family and friends. Since then there have been 145 posts, 3655 individual page views and 1570 unique visitors. On the 23rd of May last year, thanks to an anonymous share on reddit, we had our most successful day, with 196 unique visitors and 308 page views. We continue to have very loyal readerships, with nearly 20 daily views on average during the start of 2018.

I can’t thank enough all of my followers and supporters who have been loyal the past year. Here’s to another good year ahead! We have the continuation of reader favourite “Featured Bus Route” as well as many other special series including “Farewell Region 6,” “Where Can You Fly?” and the upcoming “Sydney’s Transport History”.

To celebrate, enjoy some of my favourite pictures from the blog over the past year.
