NSW In Focus 65 New Buses, new bus routes & 36 Transport Interchange Upgrades - NSW NOW!

I just received an e-mail from the New South Wales Government titled 'NSW in Focus' - which sounds good - sounds like it wasn't in focus for  over 200 years. I have learnt it is from NOW NSW 

It is providing updates on various progress works that is happening

within  New South Wales.  In future we will provide updates  in relation to public transport from here on, to keep you all informed.

Here are the improvements involving Western Sydney Public Transport:

$92 Million For Over 200 New Buses And 10 New Routes 

The NSW Government has committed more than $90 million to fund over 200 new buses in 2013-14, including 65 new buses for Western Sydney.

There will also be 10 new routes introduced across Sydney, Western Sydney, the Hunter and the Illawarra as part of the Growth Bus Program.

The NSW Government has added more than 2,800 additional weekly bus services since 2011, and this year’s investment continues to build on that.

Transport Interchange Upgrades At 36 Key Locations

The NSW Government is upgrading 36 key transport interchanges across the state – investing almost $40 million to make public transport safer and easier to use.

Interchanges need to be well lit, secure, sign-posted, protected from the elements and easy for people to navigate.

These latest upgrades include better drop off and pick up areas (called kiss and ride zones), improved lighting, signs, infrastructure, bike facilities and shelters.

Let us know if you have had new buses in your area in Western Sydney or  even if your transport interchange is being upgraded!
