Whalan Commuter Provides Some Past History On Buses

I know from Joan, one of our loyal supporters that the first bus that came to Mount Druitt was serviced by Rowes Bus Service now called Busways. According to another lady from Whalan has advised me that the bus service we  had 40 years ago was only an hourly service, so if you missed it - it was a very long wait. Yet the train connections were good,once you reached Mount Druitt Train Station:
