Written by Aksel Ritenis

The B-Line program

The B-Line Program is an integrated package of service and infrastructure improvements designed to provide more reliable journeys between Mona Vale and the Sydney CBD. Improvements to the road corridor and implementation of bus priority measures will improve reliability of bus services affected by congestion at several bottlenecks. All project construction and roadwork will be complete by 2019.

B-Line services  started 26 November

The new double-decker bus service will provide more frequent and reliable services for commuters travelling between the Northern Beaches, Lower North Shore and the Sydney CBD. It will feature 10 modern bus stops, and initially include four new commuter carparks, encouraging customers to park and ride. Services will start on 26 November 2017 from Mona Vale and Wynyard between 4:30am and 12:30am, 7 days a week. An extension to Newport is planned in 2018 following further consultation and design.
