Re: Sydney Metro West announced

But it is expected that most if not all of such bus routes will also change to Metro feeder bus services in due course. But as happened in the eastern suburbs with the light rail, more bus services than was originally planned may end up being retained. Bidders for region 4 were advised of this. Tim...

Re: Sydney Metro West announced

I have split this from the Metro West as the discussion was getting totally off subject. When the metro opens through the city, the time from Bella Vista to Martin Place (the nearest stop to Wynyard) will be 41 minutes.

Re: Sydney Metro West announced

The only Metro (North West) only operates as far as Chatswod and is due to continue to the City in 2024/2025. Hence many people who will then use feeder services to the Metro to get to the City, are still continuing to use bus services direct to the City instead of having to change onto other crowde...

But if they have more than one, they need a driver for everyone of them while a remote controller can control more that one.
