Review of Bus Route 271 - Box Hill to Ringwood
The Ringwood North section of bus Route 271 was recently reviewed. The review considered technical information (such as traffic data and bus patronage figures) as well as community feedback.
Outcomes of the review
Public Transport Victoria recently completed a review of the Ringwood North section of bus Route 271, to investigate alternative routes for the bus.
The review sought community input on two possible route options:
- Option 1: Via Cormistom Road, Athelstane Drive, Oban Road, Terrigal Close, Lockhart Road, Terrara Place, Goldsmith Avenue, Macey Grove, Rosebank Avenue (existing route)
- Option 2: Via Oban Road, Cormistom Road, Athelstane Drive, Oban Road. This option would require installing new bus stops in Oban Road and removing some existing bus stops.
Nearly 80 submissions were received during the review period, with the majority of respondents strongly supporting the existing route (option 1).
As a result of the feedback, Route 271 will continue operating along its current route.
Public Transport Victoria would like to thank everyone who made a submission to the review.
