New Bus Interchange At Tarneit Station Rolls On

Latest Posts

New Bus interchange at Tarneit station, funded through the Growth Areas Infrastructure Contribution fund, complements 500 new and upgraded car parks 

In 2020 the Andrews Labor Government announced it was delivering up to 500 extra parking spaces at Tarneit Station alongside the $1.8 billion Western Roads upgrade taking pressure off local roads and improving the commute to Melbourne by road and rail

Work on the car park is scheduled to begin in mid-2022, with construction of the new bus hub scheduled to follow later this year.

As part of the project, commuters will benefit from new accessible parking spaces, as well as additional bike parking, lighting and CCTV for added security. The additional bicycle facilities give people the opportunity to leave their cars at home, making it more convenient to cycle to the train station.

The new southern car park bus interchange located at Tarneit Station will improve accessibility and better connect the community to local schools, shops and employment, and providing a safe comfortable shelter for commuters year-round.

Also announced was a new FlexiRide on-demand bus service is expected to begin later this year in Tarneit North, further increasing transportation options in the area.

The service does not have a fixed route and allows passengers to reserve a seat on the bus via an app or phone to reach key destinations including Tarneit Station and Tarneit Central Shopping Center.

The planned works will be managed to ensure impacts to commuters are minimal, and station and commuter car parking will remain accessible throughout the project.

Tarneit Station is the busiest on the V/Line network, with more than 1.24 million commuters using the station each year followed by Southern Cross Station

Last year the Andrews Labor Government introduced a new on-demand bus service to Tarneit North to further boost public transport options in Melbourne’s west, a future superhub for transport.
