Route 607x between Rouse Hill and City QVB via T-Way and M2 is our featured bus route for November. Operated by Hillsbus, this is a route that has been immensely successful over its relatively short operational period. It has seen numerous frequency upgrades and the use of double deckers to meet demand.

The 607x began operation as a supplementary, pre-Christmas route between Railway Square and Rouse Hill Town Centre via T-Way in that direction only on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from 7 December 2011. Due to its success, it was upgraded to a off peak, late night and weekend two way service from 3 January 2012, with non the non T-Way 617x continuing in peak hours. Continued success saw a frequency upgrade as well as peak hour services introduced from 30 April 2012. Due to CBD and South East Light Rail works, the route was truncated on the city end to City QVB from 4 October 2015. Route 607x became a designated overnight service from 27 February 2016, with 24 service on Friday and Saturday nights. At this time a turn up and go peak hour service was introduced as well as high capacity double decker buses.
Today it operates every 5 minutes in peak hour, every 15-20 minutes off peak and every 30 minutes later at night. It sees service between 5am and 1am Sunday through Thursdays with 24 hour service on Fridays and Saturdays. It is operated by 14.5m and double decker buses from the CDC Hillsbus Foundary Road Depot.
