The Northern Beaches B-Line will be extended to Newport, and the existing local bus network is set for extra peak hour services.

Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said the NSW Government is committed to giving the Northern Beaches a better public transport system.

“We want to see more people leaving their car at home and that is why the new bus network plan will provide better coverage of the region, and make it easier for customers to connect with different services,” Mr Constance said.

“The new B-Line is a major part of these changes and when it arrives later this year customers will be able to connect seamlessly between the B-Line and their local services.”

Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes said the extension of the B-Line from Mona Vale to Newport would make it easier than ever to travel to the Sydney CBD.

““B-Line buses will operate between Newport and the CBD every 10 minutes across the day and every five minutes between Mona Vale and the CBD during peak times in the peak direction,” Mr Stokes said.

New routes have been created across the network, including Wheeler Heights to Manly, Mona Vale to Milsons Point, and Palm Beach to Manly.

Member for Manly James Griffin welcomed the extra services.

“These changes will provide transfer opportunities to the B-Line, improved local connections and additional services across the Northern Beaches,” Mr Griffin said.

A new route 199 will operate between Palm Beach, Avalon and Manly
Buses will run every 15 minutes, seven days a week, until late at night between Avalon and Manly.
Buses will run every 30 minutes to and from Palm Beach on weekdays, and every 15 minutes on weekends.
Customers can connect with B-Line services at stops between Newport and Brookvale.
A new route E54 will provide more frequent services during weekday peak periods for customers travelling from the Northern Beaches to North Sydney.
Specific details about our local service are:

Church Point and Bayview

Route 156 will be modified to operate between McCarrs Creek and Mona Vale, with increased frequencies across the day. For travel to Dee Why, Warringah Mall or Manly, connect to all-stops route 199 at Mona Vale.
Route E86 will no longer operate. For travel to the City, use route 156 and connect to B-Line services at Mona Vale.
Route 155 will be modified to operate between Bayview Garden Village and Narrabeen only via Narrabeen Peninsula and no longer operate to Manly. For travel to Dee Why, Warringah Mall or Manly, connect to all-stops route 199 at Mona Vale or Narrabeen

Further information about the new Northern Beaches Bus Service Plan is available on the B-Line website.

To assist vehicle owners with registering their vehicles, in 1995, SIRA negotiated and obtained permission approval from the RMS for the Fire Station to become a registered inspection station.  Pink slips are issued annually and are valid until the registration date within the year.  Warriewood RMS is aware of this arrangement and will accept renewals with these pink slips.

SIRA supports the registration of all motor vehicles on Scotland Island.  Residents with unregistered vehicles in use are putting the community at risk through the lack of third party liability cover.  Should an accident ever occur that results in injury to the driver, passengers or pedestrians, it would devastate our community.


COST:    $60.00 PER VEHICLE $10.00  S.I.R.F.B. TOTAL: $70.00

This will be a once only inspection
Please present vehicles in roadworthy condition
Rejection slips will be issued for vehicles not conforming to RMS regulations
