Liverpool - Parramatta Transitway

liverpool lineTransit Systems is currently the only service provider operating along the Liverpool - Parramatta Transitway (LPT), Sydney's first bus rapid transit corridor. The LPT first opened in 2003 and is 31km in length with 33 stations in each direction; 20kms are a dedicated bus only road with the remaining 11kms operating as priority lanes alongside general traffic.

With the LPT connecting two of western Sydney’s principle activity centres, it's primary function is not to provide end-to end travel which is more easily undertaken by rail, but service the numerous residential and employment centres along the route, and wider transport choices at Bonnyrgg, Prairiewood.and at each end.

Whilst a number of bus services operate along short lengths of the LPT, route T80 is the only service operating from end to end. From 2003 and up until October 2013 the T80 was operated by the NSW Government operator Western Sydney Buses. Transit Systems successful bid for the operation of services in the region meant the service was the first publicly operated route transferred to a private operator.

Following Transit Systems commencement as service provider, improvements have steadily been made to make travel simple for customers. In April 2015 a new ‘turn up and go’ timetable was introduced on the T80, leading to patronage growth of more than 25%. The weekday improvements have since been followed up with a similar weekend change (November 2016) and delivered Sydney's first Rapid bus route.

The smallest of the Bay Islands, Karragarra Island is about .05 km wide by 4km long. The sandy beach with swimming enclosure adjacent to ferry terminal is a popular spot for picnics and BBQ’s. Safe swimming makes it ideal for families with small children. High tide is the best time to visit. The local Council has provided electric bbq’s both on the beach and in undercover areas, playground and toilets. Karragarra has no shops so all food items and drinks must be brought with you from the mainland or purchased from the other islands. Popular with walkers and cyclists.

Lamb Island

Second smallest in size, Lamb Island is about 1 km x 1.5 km and is a pleasant island for walking or cycling. Clarks Point at the Northern end of the island is accessible at low tide and is a pretty sandy point fringed by mangroves. There is a swimming enclosure about ½ way down the island on the eastern side with a shady picnic area with electric BBQ. Lamb Island has a small kiosk that provides both grocery items and takeaway food. There is a tennis court for hire and a Bowls Club where meals are available on Fridays from 6.00 pm and bar service from 5.00 pm all days.
