The NSW State Government has confirmed that from 30 September for approximately 7 moths the Epping Chatswood Rail Link will close for conversion to Sydney Metro standards. A part of this closure, a new bus service, “Station Link,” will be introduced.
Station Link is a $49 million investment in more than 120 new, fully accessible, air-conditioned buses providing thousands of extra services from 30 September 2018. High frequency Station Link services will keep customers moving while the rail line between Epping and Chatswood is upgraded for around seven months, ahead of Sydney Metro opening in 2019.
Key features of Station Link include:
- High frequency, turn-up-and-go services to stations between Epping and Chatswood at least every six minutes during the peak.
- More than 110 services per hour in the busiest parts of the day.
- A dedicated high frequency service to Macquarie University Campus from Epping Station.
- A loop service running at least every 10 minutes 7 days a week to all stations between Epping to Chatswood.
These services will be operated by a joint venture between Transdev NSW and ComfortDelGro Corportation’s Hillsbus out of a new depot in Cameilla.
