ON DEMAND BUSES TO CONNECT THE PONDS AND SCHOFIELDS AREAS TO LOCAL STATIONS
Written on the 4 March 2019 by Kevin Conolly
Getting to the new Sydney Metro Northwest and to Schofields station will be simpler and more convenient for commuters in The Ponds and Schofields, with the launch of On Demand services connecting people from the area to the station.
"In peak times, there will be a Metro service every four minutes, allowing commuters to turn up and go. Instead of relying on a timetable, On Demand Transport will let Northwest Metro commuters book a service which picks them up from close to home and takes them to their nearest metro station," said Kevin Conolly, Member for Riverstone.
For commuters in The Ponds and Schofields, Busways will operate On Demand services to Tallawong and Rouse Hill Metro stations, and Schofields Station.
"This will encourage more people out of their cars and onto public transport", said Mr Conolly.
Services will operate on Weekdays from 5am - 9pm.
Separately, commuters in nearby Glenwood, Bella Vista, and parts of Baulkham Hills and Castle Hill will be able to connect with Norwest, Bella Vista, and Hills Showground Metro stations.
The On Demand services will launch in line with the first Metro service later this year. Commuters will be able to pay using their credit or debit card when booking through the app.
Sydney Metro Northwest is the first stage of Sydney Metro and will be the first fully-automated metro rail system in Australia.
