  • Bus Service Boost for South West Sydney

    Posted on 11 December, 2018

    Member for Camden Chris Patterson today welcomed the introduction of around 500 additional weekly bus services for customers in Sydney’s south west through the creation of three new routes.

     

    The new Route 840 service between Oran Park and Campbelltown Hospital will deliver over 250 trips each week.

     

    Buses will travel via Gregory Hills Drive and Badgally Road, with services operating every 30 minutes during weekday peak periods and every 60 minutes at other times of the day and on weekends.

     

    Route 859 from Carnes Hill to Edmondson Park via Greenway Drive and Horningsea Park Drive will create over 190 additional weekly trips. These services will operate on weekdays with a bus every 30 minutes during peak periods and every 60 minutes at other times of the day. 

     

    Route 868 from Edmondson Park to Ingleburn will provide customers with new services travelling to the Ingleburn Industrial Estate, providing over 120 additional trips from Monday through to Friday.

     

    “These extra services are designed to give customers more choice of when they travel. We’ve listened to feedback from stakeholders and studied Opal data to design three new routes that will provide the most benefit to the community,” said Mr Patterson.

     

    “The new routes cover areas like Oran Park, Campbelltown Hospital, Ingleburn Industrial Estate, Bardia and Edmondson Park Station where we know that there is growing demand.

     

    “They have been funded through the NSW Government’s Growth Services Program, which has already delivered almost 2,000 additional weekly bus services in the south west since 2011.”

     

    The new bus routes will start on 20 December. Customers should plan their journey ahead of time by visiting www.transportnsw.info.
