B-Line Success – 5.9 Million Passenger Trips In First Year

The NSW Government’s B-Line bus service has carried more people in its first year of operation than the population of Greater Sydney.

More than 5.9 million passenger trips have been made on the ground-breaking turn-up-and-go service between the Northern Beaches and the Sydney CBD since it launched in November 2017.

The B-Line has been a tremendous success since the first buses started travelling between Mona Vale and the Sydney CBD one year ago. Customer satisfaction is above 90 per cent.

B-Line services are turn-up-and-go, meaning customers travelling between Mona Vale and Wynyard have been able to throw away their timetable.

The B-Line is the centrepiece of a rejuvenated Northern Beaches bus network which was designed to make it easier for customers to travel to-and-from the Sydney CBD, as well as around the local area.

Patronage across the entire Northern Beaches has increased by around 11 per cent over the last 12 months.

In another milestone for the project, the new commuter carpark at Manly Vale will open to the public later this month.

The B-Line project has included a number of road improvements in the Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore designed to ease traffic congestion and improve bus reliability.
