What is B-Line?
The Northern Beaches B-Line program is about making bus travel an easy, reliable and comfortable way to travel along the north-south corridor between Newport and the Sydney CBD. New facilities such as commuter car parks and bicycle parking are included in the program so people can park and ride conveniently.
On the Northern Beaches, the new service is being named B-Line so that it is an easily identifiable service, with branded double decker buses and bus stop infrastructure.
How will B-Line offer a better service for the Northern Beaches?
The program aims to deliver a more frequent and reliable bus service for customers travelling between the Northern Beaches and the Sydney CBD. B-Line services will run at least every 10 minutes between 5.30am and 11pm, with services every five minutes in the peak, and every 15 minutes between 11pm and 12.30am - seven days a week.
As part of the program, road treatments such as minor lane widening, traffic light phasing, tidal flows, and priority movements are being investigated to determine a scope of works to improve bus journeys and reduce delays at congestion points, particularly Dee Why, Brookvale and Spit Junction through to Neutral Bay.
Can the community comment on the B-Line proposal?
Yes, Transport for NSW would like to hear from you. Please contact us with any enquiries.
To obtain planning approval for proposed works, environmental impact assessment documents will be prepared and placed on display for comment. Opportunities to be involved and attend information sessions will be advertised on this website, via letterbox drop to surrounding areas and in the Manly Daily and/or Mosman Daily.
The B-Line service wont be operational until 2017. What are you doing now to improve services on the Northern Beaches?
To address the immediate need for improved services on the Northern Beaches, 125 new weekly services were added to the network in February 2016, which will be followed by 360 additional weekly services in October 2016.
