Proposed bus service changes for South East Sydney
The average number of weekly bus trips across the South East has grown by 130,000 from March 2016 to the same month in 2019.
The new light rail has changed how customers in the South East travel into and out of the CBD, providing modern, turn-up-and-go services.
An integrated network plan for Sydney’s South East has now been developed to provide much needed capacity for customers as well as to support existing and emerging travel patterns.
Following community feedback on this proposed integrated network plan, changes to bus services will be introduced in late 2021.
Key benefits of the new network include:
- Light rail services operate every four minutes between the CBD and Moore Park (7am to 7pm on weekdays), with journey times averaging below 35 minutes from Randwick/Kingsford and the CBD.
- Compared to early 2019, the proposed integrated plan will boost capacity by over 40 per cent in the morning peak (6am-10am) for those heading to the CBD, and by more than 45 per cent in the evening peak (3pm-7pm) heading from the CBD to the South East.
- Providing more frequent services with eight new frequent routes across the South East, operating at least every 10 minutes or better, seven days a week.
- New routes to connect customers to their destinations and better integration with other modes of transport.
- Better integration of bus services with other buses and the L2 and L3 light rail lines.
Simplifying the bus network
- Improving access to key destinations with more frequent services to Bondi Junction, new and enhanced connections to UNSW/ Randwick, Newtown, the University of Sydney, Eastgardens, Green Square and Redfern.
- Providing better east-west and north-south connectivity with new and enhanced links based on customer travel behaviour.
- Using the buses and drivers where they are needed to provide more services across Sydney, while still ensuring adequate capacity to plan for growth.
