BETTER BUS ROUTES FOR ROMSEY AND LANCEFIELD

The Andrews Labor Government is making it easier for locals in Romsey and Lancefield to get around by creating three new bus routes by splitting the current Lancefield – Kyneton via Sunbury service and adding extra trips.

Member for Macedon, Mary-Anne Thomas, today announced that in 2019 three bus routes will serve towns in the Macedon Ranges area, giving passengers a bus network that is easier to understand and use.

The three routes will provide dedicated services for Lancefield to Sunbury, Lancefield to Gisborne and Romsey to Kyneton.

Dividing the routes will allow passengers to get where they need to go sooner, without confusion.

The changes will improve travel between Kyneton, Romsey, Lancefield, Riddells Creek, Gisborne and Sunbury.

The new routes will have extra services added each week to provide a consistent weekly timetable, give more travel options and improve connections with trains where possible.

The new Lancefield to Sunbury route will run 12 return services each week day and three return trips on Saturdays, while both Romsey to Kyneton and Lancefield to Gisborne services will operate two return services per day, Monday to Saturday.

A fact sheet outlining the changes is available on the PTV website. Timetables and journey planning information will be available one month before the changes begin. To plan your journey visit ptv.vic.gov.au
