Extra Services for B-Line and Northern Beaches Hospital
Customers on the Northern Beaches will benefit from extra trips during the morning peak on the popular B-Line bus service from 17 November along with new travel opportunities to the Northern Beaches Hospital through an extension to the existing route 155.
Northern Beaches MPs Brad Hazzard, Rob Stokes and James Griffin welcomed the further growth of local public transport services.
“The B-Line is one of the most popular ways for Northern Beaches residents to travel to the Sydney CBD, with more than half-a-million passenger trips every month and more than 10 million passenger trips since it commenced in late 2017,” Member for Manly James Griffin said.
“We know that some B-Line buses are full by the time they reach Manly Vale which is why we are adding nine extra services each weekday between 6:30am and 9:30am.”
Member for Wakehurst Brad Hazzard said the new services will begin along the route in response to community feedback.
“These buses will start from either Dee Why or Warringah Mall which will make it easier for those customers boarding closer to the city to hop on, and will have a positive flow on effect for capacity and comfort across the entire corridor in the morning peak,” Mr Hazzard said.
Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes said route 155 services from Bayview to Narrabeen will be extended to the Northern Beaches Hospital, creating a new direct link from Pittwater to the Hospital via the Wakehurst Parkway between 7am and 8pm each day.
“I am pleased we can deliver this new service which will use Wakehurst Parkway as a scheduled public transport route for the first time,” Mr Stokes said.
“The 155 extension will provide more than 180 new trips each week between Pittwater and Northern Beaches Hospital and will be an additional option for passengers connecting to Chatswood.”
The extra B-Line services and extended route 155 will commence operations on 17 November. Customers will be able to plan their trips online at www.transportnsw.info from 1 November.
