Buses replacing trains

Using buses replacing trains

Hot pink signage is being rolled out across the network to help passengers find bus replacement stops and information. Directional signage and bus replacement timetables are posted at each station, and station maps can be found on freestanding information totems on platforms at all suburban train stations.

About planned bus replacements

Most bus replacements are planned in advance for maintenance or important trackwork. Schedules and timetables will be posted on this page and in service alert notifications. Bus replacement timetables and calendars will also be posted at train stations.
