More than 100 extra weekly bus services will be added across Leppington, Gregory Hills, Gledswood Hills and Narellan in response to increased demand.

The new services will begin on Sunday, April 30.

Camden MP Chris Patterson said the new services would be delivered under the state government’s Growth Services Program.

“As Sydney’s south west becomes home to more and more families and businesses, the demand for public transport services is also growing,” he said.

“We need to make sure that we are delivering enough bus services to meet the needs of the community, now and in the future, which is what this announcement ensures.

“These additional services will give customers a wider range of travel options, enabling them to travel later on weekdays and on weekends.”

Mr Patterson said the state government had added thousands of new services across NSW.

“The services are added based on demand. I appreciate they may not suit everyone’s exact needs but we do the best we can for the community,” he said.

“The new services will run in peak times of need so people can have more direct frequent services.”

Mr Patterson said the new services were added as a result of community feedback and internal feedback from bus companies.

The new services will include 60 additional trips on weekdays which will extend operating hours to around 10pm on weeknights.

There will also be 26 additional Saturday trips between 7am and 8pm and 20 new Sunday trips between 8am and 6pm.
