MORE INNER WEST LIGHT RAIL SERVICES

From Monday August 28, 95 additional services in both directions will be added to the L1 Dulwich Hill Light rail service.

This allows weekday peak services to run a service every 8 minutes between 7am and 9am.

On Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday services will run every 13 minutes between 10am and 2pm and every 12 minutes between 2pm and 3pm. On Wednesday services will run every 12 minutes between 10am and 3pm and every 8 minutes between 3pm and 4pm, due to increased demand for Lyric and Capitol theatre shows.

On Saturdays between 11am and 5pm services will run every 10 minutes and every 12 minutes from 5pm until 7pm

CUSTOMER CONVENIENCE IS KING WITH TRANSDEV TO DELIVER ON-DEMAND TRANSPORT PILOTS IN SYDNEY

This week we welcomed Transport for New South Wales’ announcement, outlining eight pilots of On Demand Transport services that will start in Sydney later this year.

Sydney commuters are set for even more choice, with the launch of the first ever series of On Demand public transport trials that bring the bus to you.

Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said the trials were a first for NSW, and would transform the daily commute for people across Sydney.

“We have on demand movies, on demand food, and finally – NSW will have on demand transport,” Mr Constance said.

Transdev will partner with the Government to deliver two of the eight trials, proving on-demand services to customers in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, Manly and Sutherland Shire from November this year.

Customers in the Eastern Suburbs and Manly will be able to simplify their commute, by booking a shuttle ride to and from their local transport hub, connecting seamlessly with ferries, trains and buses.

In Sutherland Shire, customers will have access to fully accessible on-demand shuttle services within four neighbourhood zones making it easier to get from A to B.

Transdev CEO René Lalande said the new on-demand services would bring greater convenience to customers, provide a superior service and support the state government’s vision to innovate the transport network.

“We are excited to be working in partnership with Transport for New South Wales on two pilots in Sydney to demonstrate our international experience delivering on-demand solutions, embracing technology and offering customers a great journey,” Mr Lalande said.
