The buses have changed across Manly and the Northern beaches in December 2020.

The reason Transport NSW are changing our beloved bus routes is to reduce duplicate routes. Most routes are being replaced by new routes or they are becoming more frequent.

The 144 (Manly to Chatswood), 160X (Dee Why to Chatswood) and the 199 (Manly to Palm Beach) will become more frequent. They will now operate every 10 minutes throughout the day.

The B- Line bus will now operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It will run every 10 minutes throughout the day and every 30 minutes between midnight and 4am.

The 199 will run every 10 minutes and will also run on weekends as an overnight service between Avalon and Manly.

There will be little to no changes to the following buses:



The bus routes that are being withdrawn are:
