A common issue that new residential property developments and their residents face is accessibility and connectivity with the local public transport network.
Once a new residential community is established and excited new families move in and start calling it home, there can be a lag of many months – or longer – for the local public transport network to catch up. While that process plays out, residents of the community who don’t drive can feel isolated from key services and amenities.
Thankfully, our vibrant community and its members in Gregory Hills have enjoyed access to public bus transport on their doorstep for a number of years, with various bus routes being added or amended to take in the popular new Gregory Hills community at regular intervals.
It’s no wonder that Gregory Hills has secured a number of new public bus routes for residents in recent years. After all, a recent Australian Bureau of Statistics study found that Gregory Hills, as part of the broader Cobbitty-Leppington statistical area in southwest Sydney, is part of the fastest growing population in NSW .
