SERVICE IMPROVEMENTS ON THE WAY FOR BUS CUSTOMERS

Admin1 on May 30, 2018

Mr John Sidoti, Member for Drummoyne, today announced changes to some bus routes for customers in Sydney’s Inner West to be introduced early next month.

“Extra services on several key routes are part of improvements in the Canada Bay area to provide a simpler network with more travel options for customers,” Mr Sidoti said.

“We’ve listened to customer feedback, looked at Opal data and we’re putting on more buses when and where our customers need them.”

These include:

  • Changes to routes 462, 463, 464 and 466, including later evening services across the week for route 464 between Ashfield, Burwood and Mortlake, and route 466 between Ashfield, Burwood and Cabarita. Route 466 will also divert via Bayview Park, resulting in more frequent bus services in this area.
  • 20 additional weekly services providing earlier and later morning, and earlier afternoon peak services, on route 504 between Chiswick, Abbotsford and the City.
  • Additional afternoon peak services departing the City towards Five Dock, with five additional weekly services on route L38 between Martin Place and Abbotsford, and five additional weekly services on route L39 between Martin Place and Mortlake

As part of these initiatives, services previously provided by route 462 will be replaced by the new and altered services provided on routes 464 and 466, with route 463 services replaced by route 466. In addition, route 466 will no longer operate via Strathfield Station, with route 415 providing alternative bus services for customers between Burwood, Strathfield and Enfield.

Route 422 between Kogarah and the City via Newtown is being altered to operate to-and-from Central Station instead of Martin Place, and will operate via Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, improving access to the medical precinct in Camperdown.

Almost 50 additional weekly trips will also be added on route 444 between Campsie and Balmain, meaning a bus every 30 minutes on weeknights and Saturday evening.

Changes to routes and timetables will come into effect on 6 May. Customers are encouraged to plan their journey ahead of time at www.transportnsw.info
