Bus stops along Miranda to Bankstown
The NSW Government has funded the Gateway to the South bus improvements program. The program aims to improve the reliability of bus services on southern Sydney’s main bus corridors.
Aug 2020 - Work starts on bus stop changes
Transport for NSW will start implementing some bus stop changes on Menai Road in Menai, the Princes Highway near Oak Road in Kirrawee and the Kingsway near Miranda Park in Miranda from 17 August 2020. The changes are to improve bus reliability and on-time running along the Miranda to Bankstown bus corridor. The changes will include bus stop removals and upgrades to comply with accessibility standards as per the Disability Discrimination Act 1992.
Transport for NSW has identified some ways to improve the reliability of buses along the Miranda to Bankstown via Menai corridor.
As a part of this program, Transport for NSW, in consultation with bus operators and local councils is making changes to some bus stops on Menai Road, Menai, the Princes Highway, Kirrawee and Kingsway, Miranda. The proposed changes to bus stops are mainly serviced by bus routes M92 and 962.
These changes support the Future Transport 2056 Strategy, which is the NSW government's plan to deliver the future transport network. In this plan, a key customer outcome is safety and performance, which seeks to ensure that every customer enjoys safe travel across a high performing and efficient network. It also reflects what our customers tell us about bus services, with travel time and on time running being some of the most important service features.
The proposed bus stop changes aim to strike a balance between maintaining a reasonable walking distance (i.e. within a 400m radius or an average five minute walk) to bus stops and an efficient bus network.
Making adjustments to the number of bus stops along a bus corridor also helps improve bus travel times. Each bus stop location is considered with a focus on the safety of bus customers and motorists.
Key outcomes of the bus stop changes include:
- making travel times more reliable for bus customers
- improving customer and motorist safety for bus operations
- contributing to the NSW Government's target of 95 per cent on time running bus services.
