TfNSW announces extra B-Line services for Sydney passengers

Community feedback and current patronage data has allowed TfNSW to increase B-Line bus services in Sydney’s northern suburbs

Transport for NSW (TfNSW) is delivering 146 additional B-Line bus services in Sydney’s northern suburbs to meet an increase in customer demand. 

TfNSW says the changes, which will take place from March 31, will give passengers more frequent access to the city, reduce overcrowding on buses and improve the service’s reliability. 

“This part of the world is heavily reliant on bus services – these new changes will help ease frustration during busy times and give school students more options to make it to class on time,” NSW transport minister Jo Haylen says. 

“I’m also really pleased that TfNSW has a renewed focus on delivering additional bus services that will help students get to school.” 

New school services in the area include a route between Gordon Station and St Ives High School, additional weekday peak trips for the 230 to support school traffic, a route replacing the 589 from Turramurra High School and an altered route servicing Lindfield Learning Village. 

Extra buses will also run during weekday peaks on other popular routes, including the 150X, 165X, 170X and 174X as well as the 270, 271 and 274 on weekday mornings. 

TfNSW says the changes come off the back of community feedback and are based on current patronage data. 

“I’m so pleased to see the community’s calls and my consistent advocacy on their behalf responded to with this announcement of increased bus services on key routes,” Member for Wakehurst Michael Regan says. 

“There’s more to do to get bus services up to scratch, but this is an important step in the right direction.  

“The transport minister has assured me personally it continues to be a priority for her and the NSW government.”
