The changes, to be introduced from July 28, will deliver better bus links to Werribee, Tarneit, Williams Landing and Hoppers Crossing train stations and new estates.
•Route 167 will have seven extra services across morning and afternoon peak times between Tarneit station and Bethany Street; and an evening service between Tarneit and Hoppers Crossing stations.
•Four extra services will run in the afternoon peak period on Route 495, between Williams Landing station and Point Cook south.
•Route 498 will have five extra services between Hoppers Crossing station and the Point Cook Town Centre across morning and evening peak times.
•Route 191 from Werribee station will be extended to Manor Lakes and the Jubilee Estate in Wyndham Vale.
•Route 441 from Werribee station will be extended into Riverwalk Estate.
•Route 497 from Williams Landing station will be extended further into the Saltwater Coast Estate in Point Cook.
Minor timetable adjustments will be made to routes 166, 181 and 494 to accommodate the expanded bus services.
Werribee MP Tim Pallas, Altona MP Jill Hennessy and Tarneit MP Sarah Connolly made a joint announcement about the expanded bus services on Friday.
Ms Connolly said the changes would deliver better bus links to public transport.
“By adding extra bus services when passengers need them most, we’re making sure locals in new communities in Werribee and Wyndham can get home sooner and easier,” Mr Pallas said.
