BUS ROUTE ADJUSTMENTS FROM 26 MAY TO SUPPORT SYDNEY METRO

 On Sunday, 26 May 2019 Australia's biggest public transport project, the North West Metro, will open to customers delivering a turn up and go rail service for residents of the North West. This has been delivered on time and more than $1 billion under budget by the NSW Liberal Government.

"This is an exciting and historic moment for public transport commuters in the North West, in particular for those who wish to travel to Sydney during the weekday peaks," said Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly.

To support this new service, bus routes are being adjusted to help people get to the Metro by bus.

The bus timetable adjustments and extra bus services are in addition to the 'On demand' bus service starting on the same day in Schofields and The Ponds, enabling people to access Schofields, Tallawong and Rouse Hill stations.

Below is a list of all the North West bus changes that will take effect from 26 May 2019. For more information visit:
