Bus customers on the North Shore will benefit from over 220 additional weekly services on route 194 between St Ives and the CBD from 24 August. 

Jonathan O’Dea, Member for Davidson, said the extra services are part of a commitment by the NSW Government to deliver 14,000 additional weekly bus services across Sydney in the next four years.

“As part of these extra services, there’s an additional early morning trip each day as well as additional off peak, evening, and weekend services on route 194. This will mean customers will see a bus every 30 minutes until late evening, seven days a week,” Mr O’Dea said.

Other changes to route 194 include a new stopping pattern for off peak, evening and weekend trips.  From 24 August route 194 will operate all-stops to Cammeray shops (Miller Street and Amhurst Street), then via the Warringah Freeway to the City. 

Existing morning peak services departing St Ives until around 8.45am, and afternoon peak services departing the City between around 4.00pm and 7.00pm, will operate the same route and stops as the current 194, but will be renumbered to 194X.

From today customers will be able to view the new services and plan their journey online at

Since March 2011, the NSW Government have delivered more than 40,000 additional weekly public transport services across the state, including nearly 10,000 additional weekly bus services on Sydney’s North Shore and Northern Suburbs.
