Postby Mike M » Tue Nov 08, 2011 4:49 pm

New timetables have appeared on Metlink for Routes 411/412 (Footscray - Laverton) & 414 (Footscray - Aircraft) effective from 12 December 2011.

The Monday to Friday timetables have been completely recast although there are no changes to the frequencies. Weekend services are unaltered.

As reported in the local area maps thread, there are also route changes in Hoppers Crossing & Laverton areas the same day:

RailwayBus wrote:The changes in the Laverton/Hoppers area appear to be:

413 Hoppers Stn (not Werribee Plaza) to Laverton
415 Laverton (not Aircraft) to Williamstown
416 Hoppers Stn to Laverton (not Aircraft)


New timetables and maps are now online for these changes.

413 - http://www.metlinkmelbourne.com.au/route/view/5670
415 - http://www.metlinkmelbourne.com.au/route/view/5671
416 - http://www.metlinkmelbourne.com.au/maps ... s/bus/5672

The Saturday service on 415 remains at a pathetic 80 minute frequency.

Kind Regards


Craig :)

The changes to the 413 and 416 timetable makes it much better connecting with trains, as the timetables are harmonised (bus every 40 minutes, train every 20 minutes) with 10 minutes between train arrivals from the city and the time the bus departs. The buses also run at a clock face time table most of the time, which is also something good to have. However, both route 413 and 416 both leave Laverton station at the same times, perhaps if one of them was shifted by 20 minutes, then there would be a 20 minutely combined service to Point Cook, which might be more useful.

I think there should be an acknowledgement of this improvement. All too often the PTUA or residents love to attack the government for so many reasons, but any improvements completely pass under the radar.

Picked up a copy of the new 411/412 timetable from onboard a 411 service. Note it lists ALL services as wheelchair accessible; previous timetables had the wheelchair accessability symbol located above each relevant trip.

It would also appear copies of ALL the new timetables are available from drivers, but I can't say it with 100% certainty.
