New bus service for Clyde North

The City of Casey has welcomed the Victorian Government’s rollout of a new bus service from Clyde North to Merinda Park Station to help service and connect the city’s growing communities.

The 881 bus route will be available from 30 January and will link residents along Thompsons Road in Clyde North to local shopping precincts and the Merinda Park Station.

City of Casey Chair of Administrators Noelene Duff PSM commended the Victorian Government for delivering the new bus service.

“This is great news for our community, particularly for residents living in our fastest-growing suburbs,” Ms Duff said.

“Our community has been calling for accessible and affordable public transport to get to and from work, school and the services they need.”

The 881 service is in addition to routes 888 and 889 introduced last year to connect passengers in Clyde and Clyde North to the Berwick Station.

“New bus services for Clyde North and Clyde were among the top 10 bus routes identified by Council as being most needed, particularly with the strong growth being experienced in these areas,” Ms Duff said.

“We’re pleased to see that the government has listened and delivered these much-needed services for our community, and we thank Jordan Crugnale MP and Pauline Richards MP for their support.

“Council is keen to continue working with the Victorian Government to improve the wider bus network and road network connectivity in Casey.

“We will continue to advocate on behalf of our community for more buses to run more frequently across the city and for the extension of Thompsons Road, with a dedicated bus lane, through to Cardinia Shire.”
