How were the new bus routes and timetables developed? How can I provide feedback on the new services?
TfNSW consulted with the Griffith community in 2022 to better understand how people were using buses, and how the existing bus network and timetable could be improved. This community feedback was considered as the new bus service plan was developed, in close consultation with local bus operator Griffith Buslines.
