      136 better to swap for 109 to reduce dead runs. I have been saying it from day #1.

      Can consider merging 117 with 883 to become 1 SMRT trunk service.

      I actually think it's better to keep 117 and 883 as separate services in the long term, as one service will probably not be enough for the whole Canberra estate. Furthermore, 117's demand for the rest of its route is unlikely to deserve the same frequency as 883's route in Canberra when it is fully developed.

      Agreed,both have their own catchments...883 recently got DD upgrades also..
