Sydney Plan To Ease Traffic

The NSW government is set to trial a shuttle service picking people up from their homes and taking them to a local transport hub.

The service will be trialled in certain areas across Sydney and the Central Coast in a bid to reduce traffic and parking problems.

Transport Minister Andrew Constance has told the Triple M Newsroom this will give commuters the ability to get on a smart phone app and order a bus "it'll arrive on your door-step and take you to a nearby transport hub, or a nearby hospital or a nearby business centre such as Macquarie Park. What we are going to see here is ultimately the use of technology to change the way bus services are delivered"

Mr Constance also says it will trail for six months across regions in Sydney and "see what the community response is like"

The cost of the service will range from $2.60 through to $5 and will operate in the areas of the Northern Beaches, Sutherland Shire, Manly and Eastern Suburbs, Wetherill Park and Greystanes, the Central Coast and Edmondson Park near Glenfield.
