The NSW State Transit Authority’s Metrobus roll-out continues with a pre-Christmas service starting on Sunday December 19 from Hurstville near Botany Bay to Macquarie Park in Sydney’s north-western suburbs.

Metrobus M41 will deliver an extra 840 bus services a week, providing capacity for 46,000 passengers.

The new Metrobus service will connect businesses in Macquarie Park, take students to Macquarie University, provide a link to Concord Hospital, and run along the shopping and restaurant strips of Ryde, Hurstville, Campsie, Macquarie Centre, Concord and Burwood.

M41 will run at 10-minute intervals during peak hours, every 15 minutes during the off-peak and every 20 minutes on weeknights and weekends.

M41 will be the ninth Metrobus to take to Sydney’s roads with a further four Metrobus routes to be rolled out across Sydney by mid-2011.

All up, the expanded 13-route Metrobus network will put 8,000 more bus services on the road each week.
