Changes to bus stops along the Parramatta to Macquarie Park via Epping (route M54)

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 Parramatta to Macquarie Park via Epping bus corridor.

Background

These changes support Future Transport Strategy 2056, which is the NSW Government 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.
