Bus Service Changes from 17 November

From Sunday 17 November 2019, changes to bus services will be introduced in Sydney’s North West and Northern Beaches.

These changes will provide more reliable journeys and easier connections to Metro stations at including Rouse Hill, Kellyville, Castle Hill and Cherrybrook. There are now better connections right across the Hills District, addressing many concerns about the network introduced earlier this year. This  includes a complete redesign of services around Cherrybrook as well as high frequencies network wide.

There will also be improved improved travel options across the Northern Beaches, with more frequent B-Line services and new connections to the Northern Beaches Hospital.
