New and improved bus services for Melton, Rockbank and surrounds
From Monday 2 December 2019, Melbourne’s booming west will have new and improved bus services.
The new Route 444 Rockbank Station – Aintree will give residents in Aintree first time access to public transport and connect them to trains travelling to Melbourne and Ballarat.
Temporary change to Route 444: the service will not be able to travel the full length of Frontier Avenue (to meet Fields Street) until the road is completed. Until then, it will turn left at Timbertop Parade.
The new Route 454 Cobblebank Station – Melton Station will connect locals between the new estate and the growing areas of Melton South to trains to Melbourne and Ballarat. The new route will also help get students to four local schools within short walking distance of the route, such as Staughton College, Al Iman College, St. Anthony’s Primary School and Melton South Primary School.
The existing Route 459 Melton Station – Arnolds Creek bus service will be altered to help reduce route duplication south of Melton Station, and will be extended further north along Claret Ash Boulevard. The extension will give the community of Harkness new public transport options, while the shortened route in the south will offer a more direct journey to Melton Station.
Route 456 Sunshine Station – Melton via Caroline Springs will have an updated timetable, with all services stopping at Rockbank via Westcott Parade (instead of every second service).
The below bus routes will also have updated timetables to better reflect current traffic conditions. Click the links for route information or plan your journey on Journey Planner.
