Hundreds of extra services for Sydney

More than 200 extra services will be added to the Western Sydney bus network from next week

More than 200 extra bus services are starting next week in Western Sydney from next week, as the New South Wales Government continues to upgrade transport infrastructure.

The newest bus services will benefit customers in suburbs including Liverpool, Elizabeth Hills, and Parramatta. 

Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian says the services will provide additional frequency on existing routes on the weekend and into the evening.

"Customers are also benefitting from the rollout of electronic ticketing, and I am pleased customers are now able to use their Opal card to catch these new bus services in Western Sydney, with Opal now available on more than 3,200 buses, as well as all suburban and intercity trains and Sydney Ferries."

Member for Smithfield Andrew Rohan says the new services are great news for the local community and will improve service frequency and connections with other public transport services.

"I was also pleased to join the Minister and inspect the recently completed $12 million bus interchange upgrade at Fairfield which includes new bus shelters, new paving, landscaping, street furniture and new pedestrian crossings," he says.

"As well as providing extra services where and when they’re needed, we’re upgrading crucial transport infrastructure in Western Sydney as part of the NSW Government’s $770 million Transport Access Program."

The State Government is busy upgrading Strathfield Station, Ingleburn Station, Auburn bus interchange and delivering new parking at Glenbrook, Mount Druitt and Kingswood as part of the Transport Access Program.

Work is also underway on a new multi-storey car park at Canley Vale, which will provide more than 120 commuter parking spaces within a short walk of Canley Vale Station.
