New South Wales express bus services may be cut when Sydney's North West Rail Link is completed, according to a report
on the
North West Rail Link.

The second environmental impact statement for the multi-billion dollar North West Rail Link, released this week, shows bus services running to the city along the M2 motorway could be axed once trains begin running.

According to the report,
it is anticipated that the majority of the M2 city express bus services, which currently perform the trunk line haul service to North Sydney and the Sydney CBD, could be withdrawn from those suburbs.

The report says the buses will be used to
take passengers to the line's rail stations instead.

''These buses would then be used more efficiently to provide enhanced feeder services into NWRL stations and increased frequency to key centres such as Castle Hill and Macquarie Park," the report says.'
