M54 - Macquarie to Parramatta via Epping - starts Sunday 10 October
Metrobus M54 will begin on 10 October, connecting Parramatta, Carlingford, Epping, Macquarie University and Macquarie Park.
The M54 is a significant upgrade on the current Route 548, which it will replace, more than doubling the number of bus services each week from 385 to 840.
Those extra 455 services a week will provide capacity for 26,000 more passengers a week.
The M54 will run seven days a week, with a 10-minute frequency during peak periods, every 15 minutes during the weekday off-peak, and 20 minutes in the evening and on weekends.
Some early morning and night services will operate at a 30-minute frequency.
Further details are available in the Metrobus M54 brochure.
The M54 will provide more buses for people who work in Parramatta and Macquarie Park, more buses for students and staff going to Macquarie University and more buses for shoppers, diners and moviegoers heading to Parramatta and Macquarie Centre.
The Metrobuses are brand new and make travelling on buses easier with electronic next stop displays and digital audio messaging.
These buses are environmentally-friendly, air-conditioned and low-floored, making them easier to get on and off for wheelchair users, the elderly and parents with prams.
A further seven Metrobus routes will be rolled out across Sydney by mid-next year.
All up, the 13-route Metrobus network will put 8,000 more bus services on the road each week.
