UNSW Express Bus Service Changes in February

Posted 6 February 2017

What is happening?

Due to Light Rail work being completed near the UNSW Kensington campus, changes to Sydney Buses' UNSW Express Bus service come into effect on Monday 13 February 2017.

How will the works affect you?
  • 890 and 892 buses will now commence and end at Central Station. These services will no longer run to/from Circular Quay and passengers are encouraged to catch alternative trains or buses to Central.
  • All 895, 890 and 892 services will be renamed Route 891. Service levels will remain the same. Check the updated timetable for details.
  • 891 buses will commence from both Gate 9 and Gate 3. People waiting at Gate 9 have no advantage over people waiting at Gate 3 – the same number of buses that have always serviced the campus will continue to pick up from each stop.
  • People waiting at Gate 9 may notice empty 891 buses travelling past their stop – these buses were formerly 895s and are heading to Gate 3.
  • If 891 buses depart Gate 9 and are not at full capacity, they will stop at Gate 3 to pick up additional passengers. Please allow extra travel time to accommodate the extra stop.
