July 13, 2012

Transport for NSW has proposed changes to improve bus services in the North Shore, with consultation now underway.

A Transport for NSW spokesperson says the changes will affect selected bus routes through Hornsby, Turramurra, Pymble and Macquarie Park.

"After talking to customers and reviewing passenger levels, Transport for NSW is proposing changes, including two new bus routes to meet increased demand for services," the spokesperson says.

"The community has asked for more frequent bus services, longer hours of operation and better connections to train stations and that’s what we’re proposing to deliver.

The proposed changes include:

- Changes to route 575 between Hornsby and Macquarie Park so buses run along the Pacific Highway and Ryde Road instead of Kissing Point Road at South Turramurra

- A new extended full-time route 572 is proposed to operate between Turramurra, South Turramurra, West Pymble and Macquarie Park

- A new route 562 is proposed as an off-peak shopper hopper service with three return trips on weekdays from Gordon to Macquarie Park via Dunoon Avenue at Gordon West

- Restoration of full-time services to Canoon Road and Barwon Avenue, South Turramurra

- Improved Saturday frequencies and hours of operation on weekends.
