Extra bus and ferry services for L1 line customers

More replacement bus services and a new permanent ferry route will provide extra travel options for customers of the Inner West Light Rail from Monday.

Three dedicated bus routes will provide services between Dulwich Hill and Central, while a new direct ferry service will link Blackwattle Bay to Barangaroo.

Minister for Transport and Roads Rob Stokes said the new bus and ferry services were planned using travel data and feedback from the Inner West community.

“We have developed this enhanced travel plan to provide customers with more options in addition to regular train, bus and ferry services,” Minister Stokes said.

“The bus services will operate every 10 minutes in peak periods and 15 minutes outside of peak and on the weekend. The ferry service will run every 30 minutes Monday to Friday.

“Transport for NSW will have customer service staff at key locations along the L1 Line to provide information on travel options and the replacement services.

“I thank the community for their patience as we work to restore the Inner West Light Rail.”

Customers using L1 line replacement bus services will automatically receive a 50 per cent discount on their fare from next week, while the discount on the initial replacement bus services is being backdated to 8 November 2021.

The new F10 ferry service will only accept payments made with credit or debit cards, with full adult ferry fares charged as this is a permanent service.

Transport for NSW continues to work with Transdev, Altrac, CAF and the rail safety regulator to assess the 12 light rail vehicles, detect cause of the cracking and complete repairs as soon as possible. An updated program of works will be released in due course.
