BUS BOOST FOR KYNETON AND TRENTHAM

The Andrews Labor Government is boosting bus services for Kyneton residents with more than one hundred extra services and the launch of new bus service to Trentham.

More services across more days to more local destinations will give Kyneton passengers better connections to trains and local services.

The current Wednesday to Friday bus network will expand to six days – operating from Monday to Saturday – from 1 April.

Buses will also operate for longer, with hours extended to run between 6.20am and 7.20pm on weekdays, and timetables adjusted to better connect with V/Line trains. Most routes will get six new return services on Saturdays.

A new Trentham-Kyneton bus service means Trentham residents will also have public transport access to key Kyneton destinations for the first time – including the train station, town centre, local schools, health services and showgrounds.

Other additions include:

  • Route 1 (Kyneton Station) and Route 4 (Kyneton North) are being merged, removing the need for passengers to change buses
  • More services connecting to Kyneton train station with every train to Melbourne having a bus connection until 3.21pm on weekdays
  • A new bus stop outside the Tylden General Store

The Labor Government will also install a new accessible bus stop outside Kyneton Medical Centre on Market Street to improve access to this important medical facility and the surrounding area.

New timetables and maps outlining the service changes will be available from 1 March on the PTV website at ptv.vic.gov.au.
