There will be an additional 460 services on top of the 900 services the Andrews Labor Government added to the Precinct’s two main bus services last year.
From 15 October, the City to Fishermans Bend - routes 235 (via Williamstown Road) and 237 (via Lorimer Street) will be boosted to an eight-minute frequency in the morning and afternoon peaks, with services also running until midnight on weekdays.
On weekdays, late night services will be introduced on both routes operating every 20 minutes after 9pm until end of service making getting home late by bus easier.
Weekend frequency on Route 235 will also increase to every 20 minutes throughout the day, with services running from 6.00am to midnight on Saturdays, and 7am to midnight on Sundays. Route 235 will also start earlier at 5.40am on weekdays too following the addition of extra early morning services.
From 15 October, routes 235 and 237 services will operate a one-way loop, entering the CBD from Charles Grimes Bridge and travelling via Flinders Street, Spencer Street, Collins Street and Batman Hill Drive before heading back to Fishermans Bend.
Information on the service changes will be available from 15 September on the PTV website at ptv.vic.gov.au
