Demand for NSW services

More bus services have been introduced in Sydney as a brand new route is created for Chisholm

More than 60 extra weekly bus services will be introduced in Sydney’s north west as a new bus route is introduced into the growing suburb of Chrisholm.

A number of bus routes in the north west will get a boost in frequency and the popular route 603 will be extended to pick up and drop off customers at Rouse Hill Town Centre and growing residential areas around Kellyville.

Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian says the extra services have been made possible thanks to a $92 million investment by the NSW Government for brand-new buses to replace older vehicles and provide new routes where they’re needed across the State.

A new bus route will also begin for residents in the growing suburb of Chisholm.

The new route 189 will starts from January 27 and will travel between Thornton Station and Stockland Green Hills in East Maitland, servicing the new residential suburb in Chisholm.

"Customers will be able to choose from 100 weekly trips Monday to Friday, with a service running around every hour in the morning and afternoon peak periods, and every two hours during the middle of the day," says Berejiklian.

Liberal candidate for Maitland Steve Thomson says the new bus route connects the community with local amenities as well as with train services from Thornton Station.

"We want people to know they can leave their car at home and rely on public transport to get where they need to go," he says.
