Added: 29 January 2016

Bendigo’s new bus network, will provide more frequent and direct services to more places in Bendigo and surrounding areas.

The new network, which will start on 31 January 2016, delivers new and improved services for Spring Gully, Huntly, Eaglehawk, Jackass Flat and Epsom.

Key features will include:

  • A new cross town service will run from Huntly to Kangaroo Flat, and a new route will run to Jackass Flat and service growth areas in Strathfieldsaye and Huntly.
  • Three bus routes that will run to La Trobe University, including a new direct and frequent service from Bendigo Station.
  • Buses will run every 30-60 minutes on most routes, but a more frequent service will run between Bendigo and Eaglehawk town centre every 15 minutes on weekdays.
  • The new Bendigo bus network is the product of extensive community consultation, to ensure services meet the needs of local residents now, and in the future.

New Bendigo bus commuter hub

A new bus commuter hub in Bendigo is also being constructed which will support the introduction of the new bus network. The project is a partnership between the City of Greater Bendigo, which is managing it, and the State Government, which is funding the works through Public Transport Victoria.

Construction of the commuter hub will be undertaken from January – March 2016.

Key features will include:

  • Around 80 square metres of undercover space
  • Seating capacity for 45 people and standing room for a further 60 people
  • Two steel-framed structures that will feature two large glass oval-shaped roofs that will include screens to display the real-time bus timetabling information.

The bus commuter hub is not only designed for bus users, and will also provide undercover seating for anyone who wants to take a seat and enjoy that environment of Hargreaves Mall.

The project involves the removal of an ‘obelisk’ at the Mitchell Street end of the Mall. The Obelisk structure and its materials will be reused elsewhere.
