Expanding bus services in the south-east

The Victorian Government is improving bus services in Cranbourne West and Narre Warren to provide locals with better transport connections to employment, education, shops and train stations.

The package of works is part of a $109 million investment through the Victorian Budget 2022-23 to improve bus services across the state.

Extra bus services will be rolled out in the rapidly growing Cranbourne West, connecting locals to employment opportunities, healthcare, retail, and train services.

These services will also connect the Cranbourne West community with activity hubs such as Merinda Park train station, schools, shopping centres, and medical centres.  

Students of the newly established Cranbourne West Secondary who live in Cranbourne West, Hampton Park and Lynbrook areas will also have improved bus services.

Changes to the bus network will also be made to provide connections to the Casey Business Park near Fountain Gate in Narre Warren, improving public transport access for workers and customers.

Planning for these changes is underway and the timing of the service changes will be provided to the community when this process is completed.

In addition to these extra services, more than $5 million has been allocated in the Budget to upgrade 80 bus stops across Victoria, to improve access and comfort for public transport passengers.
