More than 2,000 extra weekly bus services will be rolled out across NSW in the next 12 months, with customers living in the Northern Beaches, Wentworth Point, Penrith, Blacktown and Lane Cove among the biggest beneficiaries.
Treasurer Dominic Perrottet and Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance today confirmed the increased services will be part of the $1.5 billion investment for bus services throughout NSW, including regional and metropolitan bus services, school services and financing of new and replacement buses.
“It is the NSW Government’s strong economic management which is allowing us to provide people across the State with the services they need and deserve,” Mr Perrottet said.
“These extra bus services demonstrate once again that this is a Budget which puts people first and delivers for the community.”
NSW Budget 2018 includes a $15.6 million boost to the Growth Services Program which will provide the extra buses and services where people need them the most.
“As well as delivering thousands of extra services we are also purchasing more than 30 new buses and over 400 replacement buses this year, with around 20 of these new buses to cater for the increased demand in school services across the State,” Mr Constance said.
“Some of the service improvements include expanding route 533 from Sydney Olympic Park to Chatswood via Wentworth Point, which currently operates during peak times only, to operate through Wentworth Point during weekdays and on weekends.
“We’re also delivering more than 1,000 extra weekly services on the Northern Beaches to improve access to the new hospital and meet the growing demand in the Frenchs Forest area.
“In Western Sydney, more than 500 extra weekly services will be introduced in including greater travel options for customers either side of the morning and afternoon peaks.”
Targeted improvements to outer metropolitan services will also be introduced to support new residential development at Cameron Park in the Lower Hunter and Wongawilli in the Illawarra.
