Locals Request Route Update – Dominic Sullivan
The service was introduced by PAYCE, the developer of the Melrose Park North Urban Renewal project, to supplement existing transport links and gauge community support.
Mr Sullivan said Meadowbank ferry wharf had been added to the route in response to requests from local residents.
He said the original timetable had also been adjusted slightly to better match the bus arrival and departure times with those of trains and ferries, in order to reduce waiting times for connections.
"Copies of the latest timetable have been handed to passengers and details are available at the bus shelter on Wharf Road and online at www.melrosepark.com.au," Mr Sullivan said.
"The service has proven to be very popular with the local community, passing its first milestone of 1000 passenger trips within the first month of starting.
"While the service caters primarily for commuters, it is available to all members of the public to use during its operation hours," Mr Sullivan continued.
