Bus Priority Infrastructure Program (BPIP)

The NSW Government released Sydney's Bus Future in 2013. This is the long term plan to redesign the bus network to meet customer needs now and into the future. Sydney's Bus Future identifies the city's most important bus routes, as the focus for investment in bus priority and more frequent services.

Macquarie Park Bus Priority and Capacity Improvements project

The Stage 1 road and intersection upgrades will support the running of the additional buses which will replace trains for around seven months between Epping and Chatswood (including at the Macquarie Park and Macquarie University train stations) from late 2018 during the Sydney Metro Northwest construction.

Bus priority and related projects

Background

Buses are a key part of Sydney’s growing and evolving public transport network. Sydney’s Bus Future is the NSW Government’s long term plan to redesign our city’s bus network to meet customer needs now and into the future.

Sydney’s buses provide more than 220 million trips a year across the city. As Sydney grows, the bus system needs to meet the challenges growth brings. Sydney’s Bus Future sets out step-by-step actions to deliver fast and reliable bus services for customers where and when they are needed.

Road and Maritime supports Sydney’s Bus Future by delivering projects in the Bus Priority Infrastructure Program that make bus services faster and more reliable. These projects help to provide:

  • red bus lanes
  • bus priority at traffic lights
  • more efficient bus stop placement.

Roads and Maritime will provide further information on specific bus priority projects as the program is rolled out.
