I'm out in Broadmeadows at TAFE quite regularly and see the bus on its way to the airport and it's got perhaps 1 or 2 pax at most.

I would retain the route from Moonee Ponds Bus interchange to Sunbury (ala 479), with the following changes:
* Replace the 467 Aberfelide route; Starting from the M.P. bus interchange, the bus would travel Hall St, Everage St, Homer St, Margaret St, Holmes Rd, Waverley St, Alma St & Tilba St to the current 467 terminus.
[The route from Airport West to Sunbury would stay the same.
*Makes the southern section of the route more relevant
*Provides a link from Aberfeldie to Niddrie and beyond
*Sunbury to Broadmeadows customers would have to change vehicles at the Airport
*Crossing the train line at Moonee Ponds would be a pain in the a$$, much like Essendon and the 903 (but not a deal-breaker)
Perhaps not the ideal solution, but maybe something worth looking at...
