NSW Transport & Infrastructure and Area 1 Management Company are pleased to announce that following community consultation, the new bus network for Busways and Westbus services in Blacktown, Penrith and Richmond will be introduced on 11 October 2009 in conjunction with the new CityRail timetable.

As part of the NSW Government's bus reform, Area 1 Management Company has a contractual arrangement to provide bus services in this area. Working closely with NSW Transport & Infrastructure, Area 1 Management Company has developed a new bus network that will provide fast, frequent and direct services to major centres such as Blacktown, Mt Druitt, Penrith, Richmond and Rouse Hill, whilst maintaining links to employment, educational and recreational facilities.

After extensive community consultation and consideration of all feedback, the new network will be introduced on 11 October 2009.

New timetables will be available from 14 September 2009 and advertisements will be placed in local papers.

Timetable information and a detailed map will be available shortly on www.131500.com.au.
