THE HILLS ARE ALIVE WITH PUBLIC TRANSPORT

The booming North-West region will get an unprecedented boost of 1000 extra bus services ahead of new Metro trains arriving every four minutes. The new services are a part of more than 1,700 extra weekly bus trips that are coming online across Sydney and the regions. The services will begin in February and will be delivered under the NSW Government’s Growth Services Program, which provides more bus services for customers when and where they are needed. Greater Western Sydney is experiencing an unparalleled period of revitalisation and growth, and the Hills District is right at the centre. The NSW Government is keeping pace with that growth by meeting the transport needs both now and into the future. Cudgegong Road is one of 13 Sydney Metro stations opening in 2019 with a train every four minutes each direction during the peak. Sydney Metro is coming to life before our eyes as part of NSW’s unprecedented building boom. While Metro is on track – we’re boosting bus services by an additional 1000 per week. Whether it’s Blacktown, Parramatta, Rouse Hill, Prospect or Kellyville – what we’re providing today is more choice to get out of the car. When complete, Cudgegong Road Station will have 1000 car parking spaces, as well as bus bays, taxis ranks and passenger drop-off zones. The extra bus services start from February 19. Extra services will be added to routes that not only connect people across the region, but also to the major employment centres of Sydney and Parramatta. Since March 2011, the NSW Government has introduced more than 16,100 extra weekly public transport services.
