Bus 548 – Epping to Parramatta via Westmead
Bus 548 is a campaign to have a direct bus route from Epping to Westmead. Westmead workers who live in areas of northern Sydney do not have a direct public transport route to Westmead. Instead they often have to change many times to reach Westmead. For example, a resident of Beecroft, when travelling by train has to change at Epping and Strathfield, travelling many extra kilometers on their journey to Westmead.
Bus 548 is a simple alteration of the current Sydney Buses route 549. Bus 548 alters route 549 by turning right onto Windsor road and then travelling via Briens Rd and the T-way to Westmead and then on to Parramatta.
The Bus 548 campaign has taken liberty to use the spare Sydney Buses route number 548. This is a campaign only and is not a current Sydney Buses route.
An example possible timetable for the morning Bus 548 is shown below.
