Following significant lobbying by my local residents, community groups and local campaigners (Emma Heyde, Sarah and Tamanna Shah) Transport NSW have finally introduced changes to the bus timetables.
From Sunday 17 November 2019, these changes will provide more services and easier connections to Metro stations and improved travel options across multiple areas including Rouse Hill, Kellyville, Castle Hill and Cherrybrook.
THE KEY CHANGES INCLUDE:
∞ Route 620X – Dural to City via Cherrybrook via M2 25 additional weekly services on route 620X, with earlier services during the afternoon peak and services operating later into the evening. The last service will now depart the City around 9pm.
∞ Route 626 – Kellyville Station to Pennant Hills via Cherrybrook Over 80 additional weekly services with extra morning and afternoon peak services between Cherrybrook Village shops and Cherrybrook Metro Station.
The route will also provide quicker access to Cherrybrook Station, operating directly via County Drive instead of via David Road.
∞ Route 632 – Rouse Hill Station to Pennant Hills via Norwest and Castle Hill Over 70 additional weekly services with extra off-peak and later evening services from Rouse Hill Station to Pennant Hills via Norwest, Castle Hill and Cherrybrook.
∞ Route 633 – Rouse Hill Station to Pennant Hills via Kellyville and Castle Hill Over 60 additional weekly services making it easier for customers to travel to-and-from the Hills Showground, Castle Hill, Cherrybrook and Pennant Hills stations.
∞ Route 635 – Castle Hill to Beecroft via West Pennant Hills 100 additional weekly services with the route adjusted to operate via Cherrybrook Village and David Road with later weeknight and new weekend services introduced. These changes will also restore the connection between the Anglican Retirement Village and Cherrybrook Village shops.
∞ Route 642X – Round Corner Dural to City via M2 Over 230 additional weekly services including either side of the afternoon peak and will now include a stop at Cherrybrook Station, as well as new off-peak and evening services between Dural and Cherrybrook Station.
∞ Route 651 – Rouse Hill Station to Epping via Castle Hill Over 50 additional weekly services between Epping and Castle Hill via West Pennant Hills on weekdays.
We also understand the Sydney Metro Trains will start running 24/7 but we are still waiting for that commencement date to be confirmed.
