New Bus Interchange Opening At St Albans Station
A new bus interchange is set to open at the brand new St Albans Station, built by the Andrews Labor Government as part of its multi-million project to remove the dangerous Main Road level crossing.
Member for St Albans Natalie Suleyman said the new interchange would provide safer, more accessible facilities for the local community and improve connections between bus and train services.
From Sunday 4 June, routes 408, 418, 419, 421, 425 and 942 will use the new terminus on St Albans Road, while routes 423 and 425 will continue to use the existing McKechnie Street terminus.
Minor timetable adjustments on Route 418 will also be introduced on 4 June, to ensure timetables better reflect journey times and traffic patterns, making it easier for passengers to plan their travel.
In Caroline Springs, Route 418 will now finish outside the Caroline Springs Civic Centre and Library on Caroline Springs Boulevard, providing better access to local schools and shopping destinations.
Passengers travelling by bus at St Albans Station can take advantage of real time arrival information using the Next 5 feature on the PTV app and website.

Timetables will be available from 4 May 2017.
