The new services, which will begin on 19 February, will be delivered under the NSW Government’s Growth Services Program, which delivers more bus services for customers when and where they’re needed.
"As the Hills District continues to grow, we need to make sure that we are delivering enough bus services to meet the needs of the community," Mr Williams said.
"The new services will be added to routes that not only connect people across the District, but also to the major employment centres of Sydney, Parramatta and Macquarie Park.
"In addition to adding services to existing routes, a brand new Route 605 from North Kellyville to Rouse Hill Town Centre will be created."
The new services will be introduced across 7 routes:
• Route 605 North Kellyville to Rouse Hill Town Centre (Over 160 services)
• Route 607X Rouse Hill to City via M2 (125 services)
• Routes 610, 610X, M61 Rouse Hill and Castle Hill to City via M2 (over 110 services)
• Route 615X North Kellyville to City via M2 (30 services)
• Route 619 Rouse Hill to Macquarie Park via Castle Hill and M2 (Over 70 services)
• Route 621 Castle Hill to City via Cherrybrook and Macquarie Park (Over 50 services)
• Routes T65, T66 Rouse Hill Town Centre to Parramatta via T-way (130 services)
The Growth Services Program will bring over 1700 new services online across Sydney in the coming weeks, boosting bus frequency and extending hours, particularly in areas of high population growth. Services will also be added to bus routes in the Illawarra, Hunter, and Central Coast.
More than 1100 of these new services will be introduced across the Hills District.
