Could we see this 'through routed' with #630 one day? Both are operated by the same owner.

The new 606 timetable towards Fishermans Bend has now appeared online.

Weekday services will operate at 40 minute intervals from 06:00 until 19:45. With the exception of the final trip, all services operate to Fishermans Bend

Saturday service will operate hourly between 08:00 & 19:30, between Elsternwick & Bay Street Port Melbourne.

Sunday service will operate hourly between 09:00 & 19:30, between Elsternwick & Bay Street Port Melbourne.

I note the service will operate on public holidays unlike 561's recent upgrade - but maybe this is the reason for finishing at 19:30 instead of 21:00?

Kind Regards

Given that the 606 will terminate at Elsternwick Station rather than Elwood and they are on very different frequencies(the 630 has a very mixed frequency including Saturdays 25 minute frequency!), it would seem unlikely, although both routes share Bent Avenue Elwood. If it were to happen there would be a major rejig of the 630.
The 606 is an interesting location as it is almost midway between the Altona and Oakleigh depots!
yolo seems to be a bit of a trend!

Could they extend #606 over the Westgate?

I would say that some direct bus link between Newport and Fishermens bend which goes over the bridge.

Let us let this route be extended one section at a time, eh? :wink:
