Bus route 782 returns to North St Marys
12 December, 2011
The former Route 782 bus service through North St Marys, will be reinstated to provide local residents with a direct link to Penrith.
The interim shuttle bus service – Route 782E - will commence from Wednesday, 21 December, until a permanent extension of Route 782 is implemented in mid-2012. This bus will provide a bus connection between Werrington station and St Marys Station, via Griffiths Street, Jackaranda Road and Maple Road.
This Route 782E shuttle “extension” will operate hourly, Mondays to Saturdays, in each direction, between 9.30am and 3pm until mid-2012.
It will then be replaced with a full Route 782 which will operate between Penrith and St Marys Station via North St Marys.

It will be great to see the full return of the service in 2012 but we will have to wait. Still, it's great to see an hourly service to an area that has no current bus.

Let's hope this leads to more services returning to the Mt Druitt-St Marys area.

Congratulations to everyone that has helped return a much needed service.
