There will be major changes to the bus network across the Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore from December 2020. This includes over 2000 new weekly service, the introduction of a new all day “frequent” network and other changes to the local bus network.
The new frequent network of routes operating every 10 minutes across the day, seven days a week are:
- Route B1 – Mona Vale to City via Dee Why and Spit Junction
- Route 100 – Mosman to City via Spit Junction and Military Road
- Route 144 – Manly to Chatswood via Spit Junction and St Leonards
- Route 160X – Dee Why to Chatswood via Beacon Hill and Frenchs Forest
- Route 199 – Palm Beach to Manly via Mona Vale and Dee Why
Route B1 will now operate 24-hours a day, seven days a week, with a service every 30 minutes seven days a week between Mona Vale and the CBD via Dee Why between midnight and 4am. New overnight services from Manly to Avalon via Mona Vale and North Sydney via Spit Junction will also be introduced.
Other changes to the local bus network have been designed to support the new frequent network, improve connections and reduce service duplication, particularly from Warringah Mall towards Manly and the City. A list of all changes are listed below.
