Manly Vale Bline Is far from fine started this petition to Andrew Constance and

The Bline promised northern beaches commuters the world but in reality, it has caused chaos, stress and frustration at the Manly Vale bus stop during peak periods for commuters.

Before the Bline
Prior to the introduction of the Bline buses the commuters at the Manly Vale stop already struggled to board buses to the city. Why?  Because the buses were already full when they arrived.  And there was usually at the worst times about 20 people waiting at the stop.

Commuters to the city had the option of the E66, E76, E77, E78, E79, 180, 179 & 178.

After the Bline
Post the introduction of the Bline buses and Bline car park opening the commuters at the Manly Vale stop must wait anywhere from 15 to 35 minutes before they can board a bus to the city. Why? Because the buses are already full, there are less buses stopping at this stop due to cancelled routes and there is car park bringing a min of 150 extra people to the stop during peak periods not including the locals who walk there. At the worst times people are queued down to Koorala St and the number is 80+.

Commuters to the city now have the option of B1, E66, E75, E76, E77, E78 & E79.

Something needs to be done
TfNSW and the Government need to improve the transport services at Manly Vale.  And other stops that have a similar problem.  There are so many options, yet nothing is done!

TfNSW said when they were engaging the community re the new Bline car park that they would start empty buses at this stop due to the introduction to the car park but they have not!

Please introduce empty buses at Manly Vale so that people can board a bus and start their journey to work without having to wait for 30mins. 

Other ideas:

  • ·Have a B2 that starts at Brookvale and then Manly Vale etc
  • L80 and L90 drive past basically empty, add Manly Vale to their route
  • E65 could stop in Kenneth Road in front of Bing Lee where there is a bus stop
  • Put on more buses
  • Add new routes so people don’t have to drive to a bus stop but can walk from their residence

The Northern Beaches community deserve better as the Bline is failing at Manly Vale. Please introduce empty buses at Manly Vale.
