New Weekend Bus Services For Lancefield And Romsey Routes

The Victorian government says rural Victorians will have more choices when it comes to weekend bus services

Lancefield and Romsey locals will have more choice with new weekend bus services across three routes connecting Lancefield and Romsey with Sunbury, Gisborne and Kyneton from October.

The Victorian government says the new offering will include Sunday services on all three routes for the first time to enhance services and better connect Lancefield and Romsey with key destinations across the region.

Passengers travelling on the Lancefield – Sunbury bus route will benefit from five new return services on Sunday as well as four additional return services on Saturday.

The additional services have been scheduled to allow bus passengers to better connect with trains leaving and arriving at Sunbury Station, helping provide more options for people to get to where they need to go as easily and quickly as possible.

Two return Sunday services will also be added to the Lancefield – Gisborne and Lancefield – Kyneton bus routes. The new Sunday services on these routes will have an identical timetable to the current Saturday timetable with one morning and one afternoon service.

The new Lancefield – Sunbury Saturday services will depart Lancefield between 8.15am and 5.25pm and depart Sunbury between 8.50am and 6.05pm, while the Sunday services will depart Lancefield between 9.35am and 4.00pm and depart Sunbury between 10.10am and 4.40pm.

Additional services will also be added on the route on Friday night and will depart Lancefield at 7.45pm and Sunbury at 8.40pm.

The Clarkefield Station bus stop will be removed from the Lancefield – Sunbury route on weekends only, as Sunbury Station will provide Lancefield passengers with better options to connect with trains on weekends.

The new timetables will be available on the PTV website and app from late September and will begin from October 23.

Sixty extra bus services were also introduced across Macedon Ranges bus routes in mid-2019, making travel between key destinations in the Macedon Ranges more accessible and more convenient.

These services are all part of rolling out Victoria’s Bus Plan, which outlines how the state government will deliver a modern, productive, environmentally sustainable bus network.
