New and modified bus services will will provide connections to Sydney Metro services in Rouse Hill, Kellyville, Bella Vista and Castle Hill. There will also be more services to new residential developments including Arnold Avenue and Foxall Road.

Since Sydney Metro opened there has been reduced demand on buses travelling to destinations like Macquarie Park, Chatswood, North Sydney and the Sydney CBD via the M2. Some M2 bus services will be adjusted to reflect the reduced demand.

Regular M2 buses will continue to run between the North West, Macquarie Park, North Sydney and Sydney CBD, but if you are travelling to areas like Chatswood you will be able to access turn-up-and-go Sydney Metro services with extra local services to connect to your nearest station.

  2. The Metro sucks if you live in West Pennant Hills and want to work or shop at Macquarie. Twice the price, 3 times the distance. 4 times the duration. Not every one wants to go to the bloody Metro. You can’t even get a seat. The Metro has been an unmitigated disaster for residents of West Pennant Hills, who enjoyed excellent bus services and are now forgotten.
