Improving bus on-time running Hornsby to Blacktown via Castle Hill bus corridor

Transport for NSW has identified some ways to improve the reliability of buses in the Hornsby, The Hills and Blacktown local government areas.

Updates and announcements

Hornsby to Blacktown via Castle Hill M60, T70 and T71 bus corridor - concept finalised and the submissions report released.

Road and Maritime Services invited feedback in August and September 2017 on improving the on-time running along the Hornsby to Blacktown via Castle Hill bus corridor.

We received a total of 56 submissions in response to the display of the Review of Environmental Factors (REF). . We would like to thank everyone for their comments. The feedback included comments about access, additional walking distances, decreased pedestrian safety and overall justification.

Roads and Maritime summarised the feedback, concerns raised and our responses into a Submissions Report and Appendix A (PDF, 15Mb) and Appendix B (PDF, 3.33Mb).

There would also be some changes to on-street parking at some locations to support these bus stop changes.

Project background

Transport for NSW and Roads and Maritime Services asked for feedback on a Review of Environmental Factors for changes to some bus stops along the Hornsby to Blacktown via Castle Hill bus corridor, mainly serviced by route M60, T70 and T71.

The NSW Government has fully funded the Bus Priority Infrastructure Program. The program aims to improve the reliability of bus services on Sydney’s main bus corridors.

The proposed changes are part of ‘Sydney’s Bus Future’, the NSW Government’s plan to redesign Sydney’s bus network to meet customer needs now and into the future. For more information please visit Sydney's Bus Future.

Key outcomes of the proposal

  • Making travel times more reliable for customers
  • Contributing to the NSW Government’s target of 95 per cent on-time running of bus services.

Community engagement

We have assessed the environmental impacts of these changes to bus services along the Hornsby to Blacktown via Castle Hill bus corridor (route M60, T70 and T71) in a report of findings called a Review of Environmental Factors (REF). It was on public display from Monday 19 February 2018.

What happens next?

The changes will be implemented between March and June 2018.

We will continue to liaise with the community throughout the project.
