A new, better bus network for Bendigo

Bendigo’s new bus network, will provide more frequent, coordinated 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.

  • Buses will be better coordinated with trains, and three routes will run to La Trobe University, including a new fast, 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 passengers now, and in the future.

From December 2014 to June 2015, Public Transport Victoria (PTV) undertook a consultation program to seek feedback and comments on the proposed new bus network for Bendigo.
