Bigger, Better Bus Network For Bendigo

02 December 2015

The Andrews Labor Government have released details of Bendigo’s new bus network, which will provide more frequent, coordinated and direct services to more places in Bendigo and surrounding areas.

The new network, which will start on 31 January next year, delivers new and improved services for Spring Gully, Huntly, Eaglehawk, Jackass Flat and Epsom.

A new cross town service will run from Huntly to Kangaroo Flat, and a new route will run to Jackass Flat and service growth areas in Strathfieldsaye and Huntly.

Buses will be better coordinated with trains, and three routes will run to La Trobe University, including a new fast, direct and frequent service from Bendigo Station.

Buses will run every 30-60 minutes on most routes, but a more frequent service will run between Bendigo and Eaglehawk town centre every 15 minutes on weekdays.

The new Bendigo bus network is the product of extensive community consultation, to ensure services meet the needs of local passengers now, and in the future.

It will complement City of Bendigo’s Integrated Transport and Land Use Strategy, and the review of train services to Melbourne as part of the Bendigo Metro Rail Project.

PTV will monitor the performance of the new network over the coming months, to ensure it is meeting the needs of local passengers.

Additional consultation will also take place in early 2016 around upgrading services to the Junortoun area, to ensure bus services continue to meet the needs of this growing area to Bendigo’s east.

For more information about Bendigo’s bigger, better bus network, including routes and timetables, visit ptv.vic.gov.au or call 1800 800 007 (6am – midnight daily).
