PTV wrote:Warrnambool line and Apollo Bay coach adjustments

From 28 January, the Warrnambool line timetable will be adjusted between Waurn Ponds and Warrnambool to reflect the new speed limits and journey time, following the successful upgrade of 22 level crossings.

From 3 February, the Saturday and Sunday evening coach between Geelong and Apollo Bay will be re-routed to reflect changes to the road network. The timetable will also be adjusted to connect with the 7pm train from Melbourne.


The weekend evening trips will now serve the Geelong CBD before the station, as per other trips.

Kind Regards

From the Ventura Facebook page:

Route 663 is updating its connection with trains making it easier for students to get home from school. Starting on Monday 29th Jan, the 3.06pm bus to Lilydale Station will run at 3.14pm

From the Ventura website, regarding service changes next month following the completion of the long-talked about upgrade to interchange facilities at Huntingdale.

Ventura Bus wrote:Huntingdale Railway Station
Sunday 18th February 2018

The modernisation of Huntingdale Railway Station commences and the following services will be updated.

Route 704 East Clayton to Oakleigh
Additional service time added to accommodate newly developed Huntingdale Railways Station.

Route 900 Smart Bus Rowville to Caulfield
Frequency increase from every 15 minutes to every 10 minutes.
Additional service time added to accommodate entry and exit to the newly developed Huntingdale Railway Station).


The frequency upgrade only relates to peak times. Offpeak remains every 15 mins, not harmonised with trains; weekend remains half-hourly.

An extra 900 stop will be finally added at Haverbrack Dr, greatly improving access to the limited stops service for this part of Wheelers Hill & Mulgrave

CDCM's 601 shuttle between Huntingdale & Monash Uni will now operate every 8 mins on non-university days (was 12 mins). Likewise, an 8 min service will operate in the early evening.

The Saturday frequency for 630 (Elwood - Monash Uni) will now be every 30 mins across the day, rather than ~25 mins in the morning & 40 mins in the afternoon.

Kind Regards

Still no news on Route 828 upgrades which are long overdue on weekends especially? Also be nice if Route 841 was every 20 minutes on weekday peak as it can be justified even if every second service was shortworking Cranbourne to Narre Warren Station

No start date forthcoming for the 40 min Saturday service for 828 bus which has previously appeared on the PTV website a couple of times in error.

I'd think a 20 min service could be justified along the entire length of 841 at peak times. Only running a higher service along half the route could potentially cause a service downgrade to Narre Warren North passengers.

The service level provided on the 841 being a cross-suburban link is quite lacking compared to multiple local routes in the current Cranbourne network that now run every 20 minutes all day long.

I think I've already posted this here before, probably 10 years ago, but the northern end of the 841 could become quite useful if the route was extended from Narre Warren North to Endeavour Hills, abolishing the very sparse 842 service.

Infact I'd even suggest going one step further and sending the route west along Heatherton Road to Noble Park station, which would shave probably 15 minutes off the journey time toward the city for Endeavour Hills residents compared to going via Dandenong on the current routes :twisted:

That is exactly what I would do with that route,Broadguage.I reckon given an adequate frequency(20 mins) that would be a good solid loading route.
