Changes to bus stops along the Dee Why to Manly via Mona Vale (route 136)

The NSW Government has funded the Bus Priority Infrastructure Program. The program aims to improve the reliability of bus services on Sydney’s main bus corridors. Transport for NSW has identified some ways to improve the reliability of buses along the Chatswood to Manly bus corridor.


These changes support Future Transport Strategy 2056, which is the NSW Government’s plan to deliver the future transport network. In this plan, a key customer outcome is safety and performance, which seeks to ensure that every customer enjoys safe travel across a high performing and efficient network. It also reflects what our customers tell us about bus services, with travel time and on-time running being some of the most important service features.

Key outcomes

Key outcomes with the bus stop changes include:

  • improving safety for bus operations
  • making travel times more reliable for customers
  • contributing to the NSW Government’s target of 95 per cent on-time running of bus services.

Bus stop changes

From Monday 3 September 2018 as part of this program, Transport for NSW and Roads and Maritime will implement the following changes to bus stops at:

Warringah Road near Melwood Avenue, Forestville

Following feedback from local bus customers and further consideration of technical issues the decision has been made to retain the bus stops (TSN 208753 and TSN 208736) in their current location, at this time.

Adams Street near Travers Road, Curl Curl

These stops are serviced by routes 136, 139 and E65. 

The bus stops at Adams Street near Travers Road will be removed. This change reflects low customer usage of the bus stop and the availability of alternate bus stops within a reasonable walking distance, near Park Street or after Lalchere Street.

The works associated with the bus stop changes, include:

  • removal of the bus stops number 209637 and 209662
  • replacement of bus zones with no stopping zones.

What happens next?

The bus stops removals will be implemented from 3 September 2018.

Works to remove the bus stop seat are expected to be completed by mid-December 2018.

We will keep the community updated throughout the project.
