From Sunday 26 August we're changing the Plenty Valley bus network, connecting you to three new stations and almost a thousand train services on the Mernda Line. The revised bus services will give you convenient access to train stations at Middle Gorge, Hawkstowe and Mernda, as well as schools and key community destinations such as shopping centres.

What's changing on your route?

  • Route 381 Mernda Station to Diamond Creek Station via Doreen (previously Diamond Creek to South Morang Station) will terminate at Mernda Station instead of South Morang Station.
  • Route 382 to Whittlesea to Northland Shopping Centre via South Morang Station will connect to Mernda Station.

  • Route 383 Palisades to University Hill will connect to Middle Gorge Station.

  • Route 384 Kinglake to Whittlesea via Humevale will have a new timetable with an additional trip to Kinglake after 5pm on weekdays.

  • Route 385 Whittlesea/Mernda Station to Greensborough (previously Whittlesea/Mernda North to Greensborough) will continue to have Greensborough Station as its main connection but will also go to Mernda Station.

  • Route 386 Mernda Station to Bundoora RMIT via Cravens Rd and South Morang (previously Mernda North to Bundoora RMIT via Cravens Rd and South Morang) will travel along Galloway Drive to Mernda Village Shopping Centre, then run via Mernda Village Drive and Plenty Road to Mernda Station

  • Route 387 Mernda Station to Bundoora RMIT via Hawkstowe Parade and South Morang (previously Mernda North to Bundoora RMIT via Hawkstower Pde and South Morang) will have route changes to connect to trains at Mernda Station

New routes added

Route 385, 388 and 389 will have a minor route change in Mernda and Doreen while works on Wallaroo Way and Painted Hills Road are finished. Once works are completed, route 385, 388 and 389 will travel along the new routes as planned.
