From Monday to Friday the service runs every 10 minutes in peak hours and every 15 minutes off-peak. You can view the timetables on the Transport NSW website.

Bus stop locations
  • Lidcombe Station on the eastern Commonwealth Bank side.
  • Cumberland Campus: Going to Lidcombe the bus stop is located outside Gate 1. Travelling from Lidcombe station or towards Bankstown the bus stop is on East Street, located on the opposite side of road from the campus between Gates 1 & 2.
Interconnecting routes

The Metrobus services allows you to plan connecting journeys via bus with the M92 intersecting with the M90 (Liverpool to Burwood) and M91 (Parramatta to Hurstville) services at the Bankstown interchange. View timetables or plan your journey on the Transport NSW website.

**When crossing East Street please use the pedestrian refuge, available 100m downhill from the bus stop (towards Lidcombe) to cross East Street. The pedestrian refuge is there to assist you to cross the road in two stages. It does not give you right of way over vehicles. Please remember that under regulation 230 of the NSW Road Rules 2008 pedestrians "must cross by the shortest safe route". This is by using the pedestrian refuge adjacent to Gate 1. The maximum penalty for disobeying this regulation is $2200.

We all have a responsibility for our personal own safety. Please ensure that you cross East Street safely and encourage your colleagues and students to do likewise.
