Maianbar Bundeena Bus Service

Postby Fleet Lists » Wed Dec 06, 2017 3:24 pm

Route 989 timetable dated 26/11/2017 on the Transdev website still States
"Who is providing my bus services?
The bus services shown in this timetable are run by
Maianbar Bundeena Bus Service."

But I read in Wiki which I do not always trust that this has been taken over by Transdev this year.

And the 989 timetable on Transport Info now also shows Transdev.

Does anyone know whether Transdev has taken over this route?

Their website www.maianbarbundeenabus.com is still live.If Transdev had bought the business the website would not be live.
The 989 service is operated as a subcontract to Transdev which would explain the info on Transport info.

Newly issued timetable says Transdev. https://transportnsw.info/documents/tim ... 171126.pdf Perhaps responsibility for the service is with Transdev, with the provision sub-contracted to MBBS? Timetable on MBBS website dates back to 2008, so perhaps website is not being maintained. http://www.maianbarbundeenabus.com/Bund ... etable.pdf

Even though the website has not been maintained, it could still be actve if the route was fully taken over by Transdev but Maianbar Bundeena is still doing charter work even though they have cut back a lot on that in the last few years.

Seeing that nobody knows for certain, best way to ascertain will be either ring them up or go down to Westfield Miranda on Friday and see what turns up. :D

I have phoned them and they are still operating route 989 - not Transdev.

Where does the 989 pick up from at Miranda on the Friday service out of interest? Maps seem to indicate pick up is on The Kingsway, rather than a bus stand in Kiora Rd.

Which makes it the only bus route which doesn't use a Kiora Rd stop. I've seen the bus a few times on layover in the bus zone on Kiora Rd near Our Lady Star of the Sea School, so it must just turn right from there into The Kingsway to pickup from outside Westfield.

You can also see it at Engadine on Wednesdays in the middle of the day.

I and others have caught the 989 on a Friday at the Kingsway stop, outside Westfield. Makes an interesting trip. Note that it sets down as required in Maianbar and Bundeena on the return trip.

gets even better when Audley Weir is flooded, and the bus has to divert via Waterfall
