  • What time will the 156 FROM Church point operate from in the morning as currently the first bus is not untill 6.50 am so I drive to Mona Vale park n ride? Also how frequent will the E54 be from Milsons Point during evening peak hours?

    Jacky asked 15 days ago

    Hi Jacky

    The route 156 will operate at a 15 minutes inbound frequency during AM peak and PM outbound frequency during the PM peak. Off-peak and weekend frequency will be 30 minutes. However, the lines of timetables for all routes are currently being produced and specific information regarding service precise hours will be available prior to the implementation of the new bus service plan in late 2017.

    Route E54 will have an express service from Mona Vale to North Sydney via Milsons Point. It will provide frequent service and trips from 6 am until 9 am and operating during weekday peak periods with 30 minute frequency on contra peak services. Customers will have greater flexibility with their travel times.

    Thanks for your enqury

  • Hi , would you please advise how much more time will be added to the E71 journey once it it adds five additional stops in Mosman to make it all stops to Spit Junction.

    AC asked 5 days ago

    Hi AC

    The changes to the stopping pattern of the route E71 will add 4 extra bus stops to the trip. The current difference in travel times between route E71 and service which operate all stops to Spit Junction is between 1-3 minutes.

  • What type of bus will operate the 199 route

    John dunn asked 22 days ago

    Hi John

    Route 199 will be operated for the existing articulated bus across the corridor. 

    Thanks for your enquiry

    ~ Andrea

  • How are these new services going to make my trip quicker considering the amount of bus congestion is high. The changing of buses will extend my travel time hope this is not another scam to privatise and increase fares

    libby asked about 1 month ago

    Hi Libby

    B-Line services will provide reliability, increased frequency every 5 minutes from Mona Vale to the city, and greater passenger capacity with the new double Decker buses. In addition, connections will be quicker and transfer to other services consistent. Connecting routes with B-Line services have been modified with increased/ reduced frequency such as E88, 156 or L90 to provide better services. Travel time is expected to be improved across the corridor due to the reasons exposed 

    Nevertheless, the B-Line may take slightly longer to travel to the City, it connects customers to other popular destinations along the corridor such as Dee Why and Warringah Mall and operates during peak, off-peak and weekends in both directions.

    Thanks

    ~ Andrea

  • Hi, do you have a tentative timetable of buses which will service Church Point to Mona Vale and return peak times? Thanks, Grace

    Grace Marshall asked about 1 month ago

    Hi Grace

    For residents travelling from Church Point they will catch route 156 (McCarrs Creek to Mona Vale) and connect with the B-Line or Express service at Mona Vale. The route 156 will operate at a 15 min inbound frequency during AM peak and PM outbound frequency during the PM peak. Off-peak and weekend frequency will be 30 mins.

    Thanks for your enquiry

  • Please advise the travel time between Mona Vale and the CBD on the B Line during peak periods.

    Mo asked about 1 month ago

    Hi Mo

    Exact time travel hasn't been established as yet. With the release of the new timetable prior B-Line services implementation late 2017, information provided will be more accurate.

    Many thanks

    ~ Andrea

  • It's good to see some significant improvements in the new plan, however, there are a number of changes that could have been addressed better. The 143/144 should be streamlined into one route (as has happened for weekend services all being 144's), this would make it simpler and easier to use. Secondly, it is bad oversight that the 168/E68 will terminate one stop short of the Manly Vale B-line stop. What is the point of this? Yes, I know that these services are primarily targeted at peak hour commuters, but by commencing/terminating one stop away from the B-line, you are reducing connectivity and potential travel options for those who may wish to transfer from the B-line or other local services at Manly Vale onto the 168/E68 during its hours of operation - it is counterintuitive from a network planning perspective. Thirdly, will the services along Pittwater Rd between Warringah Mall and Manly continue to be time coordinated? Particularly at night with reduced service frequencies, there can be overcrowding issues, especially on Friday/Saturday nights, so it is vital that the headways promote balanced loading. Fourthly, why is the L90 being retained at such dismal frequencies? With the B-line introduction and the good frequencies that route 199 will provide, it seems ridiculous to even retain the L90 at such a poor frequency. It'd be better to use these resources in boosting the B-line further or improving the 199 service. Unless people are coincidentally planning to travel at the time the bus departs, no one will wait 60 minutes to catch a bus from the City to Palm Beach when they can get there quicker using the B-line and transferring to the 199 at Newport. I bet it will likely be withdrawn in the future for this reason. It is better to just get it over and done with now and avoid the confusion that will arise with tourists not realising that there are two options to Palm Beach from the City. And finally, does anyone actually catch the bus to Bantry Bay Rd on route 137? Why is this route being retained? Is it simply out of scope for the current review of services or are there other reasons? Thanks

    ZackH asked about 2 months ago

    Hi ZackH

    Thanks for your suggestions and queries. Please find responses below:

    1. The 144 will operate a base 15- 30 minute frequency across the day, The route 143 is being retained during weekday peak periods to provide a more direct/quick trip along Pacific Highway (the 143 does not go into the Hospital) for commuters.

    2. The customer makes a valid point, however the route 132 operates from the same catchment and provides connection to B-Line stop at Manly Vale.

    3. The Pittwater Rd corridor between Warringah Mall and Manly will be evenly spaced, as you suggested, with routes 199,169,159 and 146.

    4. The L90 will be retained at a reduced frequency to maintain off-peak and weekend links between Palm Beach at the City

    5. The route 137 provides a service to the disability employment centre ‘House with No Steps” for people with disabilities that would otherwise find it difficult to get to via public transport. The 137 operate 1 trip from Chatswood to the "House with No Steps" in the morning and 1 trip from the House With No Steps to Chatswood in the afternoon.

  • Hi, I've noted that there is B-Line terminus at Newport. A local paper indicated that a possible multi level car park will be built at the existing Newport Beach carpark next to the beach. Kindly confirm that this is not going to be a reality. ( Good question from Dave ) Many thanks. Neil

    Hamilton asked 9 days ago

    Hi Neil,

    Thanks for getting in touch. 

    All Newport B-Line sites are currently in the planning phase and no final decisions have been made on any infrastructure locations. 

    There is no multi level car park being proposed for Newport Beach car park. There is no appetite for such a large development in this area and no plans to explore this option. 

    I hope I have addressed your concerns and if you have any other questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.

    Many thanks,

    Kristina



  • What priority will occur for seniors seating downstairs on the new double decker buses? I would imagine that seniors negotiating the stairs to the upper deck at take off or coming down at stopping could be easily injured.

  • My logic says that the new Bline service from Mona Vale to the city is going to take longer than the current E88 service as the Bline has an additional three stops. Would I be correct?

    LisaJ asked about 2 months ago

    Hi LisaJ

    B-Line service might take slightly longer but it will have higher frequency (turn-up-and-go) and the additional capacity provided by increased frequency and larger vehicles. Reliability, frequency and capacity will be improved significantly across the corridor.  

    Thanks

    ~ Andrea

  • Where can we see ALL the stops that the E85 will stop at? It is extremely difficult if not impossible to get a clear and unambiguous picture of how to get a direct bus to/from the city from Macpherson Street Warriewood. We used to have this with the L85, until the council closed Macpherson Street for a whole year (instead of doing the roadwork before filling the valley with houses). Now we have to change buses to get a "fast" service!

    asked about 2 months ago

    Hi at

    Timetables for all bus services on the Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore will be available prior to the service changes in late 2017.

  • I currently catch the E86 from Church Point at 7:05am to reach my workplace (Central Station) by 9:00am. From the new timetable, it looks like I will need to catch the 156 then change at MONA Vale with the only option being the b-line! So, 10 stops...can this really be considered an EXPRESS service? It looks to me like the E88/87 service is not stopping at MONA Vale to at least give people some option to get the city within a reasonable timeframe. Is this correct?

    Josephine asked about 2 months ago

    Hi Josephine

    Route 156 will have an increased frequency across the day (7 days) and additional trips and increased frequency during weekday peak periods. Then you can transfer to B-Line service, operating every five minutes during the peak in the peak direction between Mona Vale and the City. It will provide a reliable and more frequent service.

    Route 182 will have same frequency as currently provided. In addition services will operate on Sundays as well.  You will have to catch B-Line services at Mona Vale when going to Wynyard. B-Line services will be available every five minutes during the peak in the peak direction between Mona Vale and the City, avoiding long waiting periods.  Routes adjustments have been made according to customer demand. Route L85 has been discontinued but route 155 still will be operating  with same frequency.  B-Line will provided more frequent and reliable services to the city from the northern beaches.

    Regards

    ~ Andrea

  • Hi, will there be any changes to the T3 lane on Spit Road to make it a dedicated bus lane? Seems nonsensical to add more buses without giving them a dedicated bus lane all the way from the Northern Beaches to the city.

    Nicola asked about 1 month ago

    Hi Nicola

    Currently there has been no formal decision made to pursue changes to the existing operation of T3 transit lanes between Manly Vale and Neutral Bay with the introduction of the B-Line bus service, which is planned to start operating in late 2017.

    We will continue to keep the community informed via our website and newsletters.

  • My daughter travels by bus to Mackellar Girls School (in Campbell St, Manly Vale) from Elanora Heights. She catches the E83 to Narrabeen then gets out to catch the 623 School bus. Unfortunately, most days the E83 arrives after the 623 has departed so she then has to catch an L85 which stops on Pittwater Road at Gordon Street. If the L85 service is being scrapped how will she get to school?

    James asked about 2 months ago

    Hi James,

    While it is true the L85 service will be discontinued, there will be increased frequency of the E83 service in the AM peak period. This will mean your daughter has more options to make her 623 school bus. 

    Further information timetables for all bus services on the Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore will be available prior to the service changes in late 2017. 

    Thanks for getting in touch,

    ~ Kristina.

  • Could you please explain how these changes will improve travel time to the city from Avalon? (The E88 now has more stops and the alternative is to take two buses - 199 and B-line) How will increased traffic in the bus lanes be addressed, given that there will be a lot more buses? thank you

    Jess asked about 2 months ago

    Hi Jess,

    There are restrictions to the number of buses allowed during peak times. B-Line will not add more buses to peak hours, but the double-decker vehicles will increase the number of people able to travel to the CBD at these peak periods.

    Changing buses onto a B-Line service will be of huge benefit to those living north of Mona Vale as it will be a dependable route to the city at all times. So for commuters in Avalon like yourself if you get the E88 or the new 199 to Newport and change to the B-Line, you're going to have a reliable and comfortable seated journey to the city on a limited-stop service.

    B-line services will be available every 10 minutes from Newport and every 5 minutes from Mona Vale.

    Route E88 will continue to provide direct services between Avalon and the CBD and will have increased frequency during AM and PM peak hours. Route 199 will run every 15 minutes from Avalon on weekdays and weekends.

    Further information timetables for all bus services on the Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore will be available prior to the service changes in late 2017.

    Thanks for getting in touch,

  • Hmmm. •Route E69 will have a modified stopping pattern & •There will be no changes to routes .... E69 Why does the E69 need to be slowed down to stop at Heaton Ave and Avona Cr when existing services already adequately cover these stops? •Additional route E69 services will be provided Not sure how this will be possible when there are already regular occurrences of these services not showing up. They also still have delays every day due to the long route through Narraweena and Frenchs Forest. Why can't Seaforth have it's own non-roadworks delayed service?

    DavidJ asked about 2 months ago

    Hi David J

    Thanks for your question.

    The E69 has a modified stopping pattern, which you can see here. However customers at Cremorne Jct and Watson St will not experience any changes to this route which is why it is referred to as no change at these locations.

    If you would like to get in touch about current services, please visit: https://transportnsw.info/contact-us/feedback/bus-feedback

    Efforts are made to minimise the impact of infrastructure upgrades wherever possible. Roadwork is an important part of improvements to a variety of infrastructure and services, and we thank you for your patience while these are conducted.

  • Hi Andrea, you completely blew me away with your non-answer to my question "If I live on Warriewood Road near Foley Street what bus/busses will I have to catch to get me to Central in time to catch a 6.00 am train from the country platform? My journey will be on weekdays as well as weekends. Your response was: " The B-Line will run between 5.30 am and 12.30 am, 7 days a week. Outside of these hours, routes 151 and 188 will continue to operate as the late night services on the Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore, stopping near Wynyard where a transfer will be required to Central."

    Mark Horton asked about 1 month ago

    Hi Mark

    Thanks for following up. I've provided you with the information we have avalaible at the moment. But, I'll try to clarify it as much as I can.  You can catch B-line services from Barrenjoey Road next to Village Park (Southbound) at 5:30 am to the city.  TfNSW is continuing to work with the Sydney Coordination Office to finalise the city stops for Northern Beaches buses. It is currently proposed that buses will stop around near Wynyard Station. In this case, you have to transfer from Wynyard station to Central (train could be the best option).  In case you need to depart or arrive earlier or later from B-line services, you will have to catch routes 151 (late night services) and 188 (Same frequency as provided and additional early morning trips to the city).

    Thanks

  • If the service is to be extended to Newport what is proposed re the termination of B-line buses in Newport ie. traffic alterations and any buildings required and their position in the suburb?

    Resident asked about 2 months ago

    Hi Resident,

    No final decision has been made regarding the termination of B-Line buses at Newport. We will be engaging with stakeholder groups to determine where the B-Line will stop. TfNSW is considering commuter car parking options at Newport and it will be subject to a Review of Environmental Factors (including public display) and planning approval.

  • Is this the death of small business for shop owners along Pittwater Road as there will be no parking at all throughout the day/night

    Msces asked about 2 months ago

    Hi Msces,

    Changes to parking conditions are being considered, and would be subject to community consultation and formal approval. Further information will be provided on the B-Line website when the proposal is finalised. At the moment, there are no plans to change the parking arrangements on the section of Pittwater Road between Collaroy and Narrabeen. Sections of road at Collaroy and Narrabeen may be impacted by works to ensure the B-Line buses provide a reliable and frequent transport service across the Northern Beaches corridor to the CBD, but also ensuring businesses are engaged during this process.

    Thanks

    ~ Andrea

  • Mostly this is good. But surely it would have been better to modify the 191 service to run between Newport and Avalon in both directions via Bilgola Plateau and Clareville rather than just increasing the frequency of the one-way loop service.

    Topaz asked about 2 months ago

    Hi Topaz,

    Thanks for your comment.  Route 191 was determined to have increased frequency around Bilgola Plateau and Clareville to provide more services between Newport and Avalon. The B-Line service will operate every 10 minutes between Newport and the City. It will provide more frequent and reliable services to the whole area of the Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore.

    Thanks

    ~ Andrea

  • Any chance you can explain why the service was extended to Newport, but not Avalon and Palm Beach?

    pnywo asked about 2 months ago

    Hi Pnywo,

    Our studies showed that extending the B-Line past Newport would have potentially had negative impacts on bus reliability across the corridor, due to variability in travel times through the Bilgola Bends. Routes E88 and L90 (off peak) will continue to provide direct services between Avalon and the CBD.

    Thanks

    ~ Andrea

  • For E88 services your say "with services operating all stops to Narrabeen" does that mean all existing stops serviced by the E88. Or All bus stops between Avalon and Narrabeen?

    pnywo asked about 2 months ago

    Hi Pnywo

    Route E88 stopping pattern has been modified. It will stop from Avalon to Narrabeen as usual. From there it will operate as an express route with stopping pattern only at Neutral Bay Junction and the City.  Route E88 will have increased frequency during AM and PM peak and additional AM and PM peak services.

    Thanks

    Dave asked about 2 months ago

    Hi Dave

    The scope of works at Newport hasn't been defined. It is still in the very early stages of development and no decision has been made on this matter as yet. We will be engaging with stakeholders in the near future over possible options about buses turnover. In addtion, TfNSW is considering commuter car parking options at Newport. Any proposal would be subject to a Review of Environmental Factors (including public display) and planning approval.

    Thanks

    ~ Andrea

  • How will the Neutral Bay changeover area be improved? As a regular commuter to the North Sydney area from the Northern Beaches it has always bugged me that it is faster to drive and park than bus in, and the wait times in this location are a big part of that. I am also going to have to use 3 buses to get home, so wait times matter to me!

    Angus Mac asked about 2 months ago

    Hi Angus,

    Thanks for your enquiry. For travel between North Sydney area and Northern Beaches, the new E54 route would provide a frequent service between Mona Vale, Dee Why and North Sydney/Milsons Point operating during weekday peak periods.

    Hi David

    Route 199 is a new route operating between Palm Beach, Avalon and Manly. It will run every 15 minutes on weekdays between Avalon and Manly, and every 30 minutes between Palm Beach and Manly (plus every 15 minutes on weekends). Route E88 have increased frequency during AM and PM peak hours and additional AM and PM peak services will be operating. Route E89 will keep same frequency as currently provided.Further information will be provided when timetables for all bus services on the Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore become available prior to the service changes in late 2017.

    Thanks

    ~ Andrea

  • Hi Andrea, Thanks for your response to my question about 'how frequently the E88 will be' but it doesn't really answer what I thought was a simple question, so let me rephrase, in peak periods catching the E88/E89 to Narrabeen/Warriewood/Mona vale etc will be quicker than the B-Line as it stops less frequently. So I was wondering how often the E88/E89 would be? and the same in reverse in morning peak. Thanks Brett

    Brett asked about 2 months ago

    Hi Brett

    Thanks for following up. While we are still finalising the frequencies of the different services, we are proposing to increase the frequency of the E88 (both AM and PM peak) and keep the current frequency of the E89. The new timetables will be finalised prior to the release of the B-Line later this year 2017.

  • More a suggestion/request than a question: No problem with changing buses due to L85 discontinuation, but please offer at least 3 services per hour (better 4) off peak and weekends and 5 or 6 during the peak on the 185 through Warriewood Valley to connect with BLine or E88 and E89 - it would be a nightmare to arrive at Narrabeen or Pittwater Park only to realise the 185 just left and the next is an hour away. Thank you

    Jo asked about 2 months ago

    Hi Jo

    The route 185 is scheduled to operate at 30 minute frequency during off-peak and on weekends (same as the current L85 frequency). During the peak periods the 185 will not operate (in the peak direction) and is replaced by the E85 Mona Vale to City via Warriewood Valley. The E85 will operate at a 15 minute frequency during the peak periods. Further information will be available when timetables are released late 2017.

  • What is Tidal flow area ? How far along Military Road from Wycombe road to Barry St travelling to city will Tidal flow area affect parking ?

    Paul Harrison asked about 2 months ago

    Hi Paul

    Tidal flow is a ‘reversible’ lane in which traffic may travel in either direction depending on the time of day or traffic conditions.  Through the usage of movable medians, candy bar bollards, and/or in-pavement lights, the lane configuration will be changed to allow three uninterrupted lanes citybound past existing bus stops and two lanes outbound during AM peak. Tidal flow is designed to improve traffic flow along Military Road during AM peak period by allowing T3 transit lane users and limited-stop buses to pass bus stops without being held up behind stopped buses.

    No parking will be affected on Military Rd (travelling to City) between Wycombe Rd and Barry St as a result of the tidal flow. Existing parking restrictions in this section will remain.
