Bus commuters in Sydney’s north west will soon benefit from improved journeys, with better connections and more frequent trips on the way.
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly said that the public bus improvements are part of upcoming changes to the bus network, which includes more than 2,000 additional weekly services being introduced across North West and Western Sydney.
As part of the changes to be introduced on Sunday 18 April bus commuters in and around the Riverstone electorate will benefit from the following improvements:
- Route 741 (Box Hill – Riverstone): Over 230 additional weekly services, including new off peak, evening and weekend services
- Route 746 (Riverstone – Rouse Hill via Box Hill): Over 140 additional weekly services, including new weekend services
- Route 747 (Mt Druitt – Rouse Hill via Plumpton, Marsden Park and Riverstone) – Over 60 additional weekly services and route extended to Mt Druitt
- Route 748 (Marsden Park – Rouse Hill via Schofields and Tallawong stations) – New route, around 600 new weekly services
“We know more people will choose public transport if there are more regular bus services across the day that provide timely connections to train services,” Mr Conolly said.
“So these improvements are fantastic news for these suburbs and a welcome plan to address future growth so people can continue to receive better and more frequent connections for work and play,” Mr Conolly said.
To support the improvements, there will also be minor adjustments to some school and regular services.
Commuters will be able to plan their trip from early April at transportnsw.info .
Since March 2011, the NSW Government has added more than 55,000 extra weekly public transport services.
