Very early to speculate, no one knows at this stage, who knows they might the deckers need to to provide feeder routes to the metro services.

Not necessarily - they can be and are already being used on other routes such as 619 - there was a recent discussion on that aspect.

Since you refer to "other routes" what are your assumptions regarding the routes they currently operate on?

The M61 isn't going away in a hurry. Even when SMNW opens, the fastest way from Castle Hill (and Baulkham Hills) to the City will still be M61.

I think even the 619 will still be time competitive from Baulkham Hills to Macquarie Uni Station with SMNW.

Now that they own Forest, one option could be to boost capacity on routes to Belrose.

Another option could be to turn the Northwest T-Way into a B-Line, with a trunk route of frequent deckers and feeders to the T-Way and Metro.

Or boost capacity on the 611 and M61, because even after the Metro reaches the city there will still be strong demand from Baulkham Hills, the M2, and Seven Hills/Blacktown to Macquarie Park and the city.
