I had a letter published in today’s City News on the extension of the Village-to-Village shuttle bus service to Elizabeth Bay. This follows the withdrawal of the 311 bus service from Ithaca Rd, Billyard Ave and Onslow Ave in Elizabeth Bay.
For some reason the first sentence was omitted from the printed edition of City News.
Missing bus stop
It’s good to see that the City of Sydney is expanding the village-to-village shuttle bus route to include Elizabeth Bay. This follows the extensive community campaign to reinstate the 311 bus service to the Ithaca Road “loop”.
It appears that there will be two shuttle bus stops on that loop – while the 311 service had three. The “missing” stop is at the corner of Ithaca Road and Billyard Avenue.
I’ve written to Council asking if there’s a reason for not including the third stop, and whether it could be included on a trial basis. It will be good to hear Council’s reply.
