Residents of Cabramatta, Canley Vale and Canley Heights now have a new bus line known as the Brown Line. The Brown Line bus route is part of the Community City Connect bus service run by Fairfield City Council. The route connects throughout the three suburbs Cabramatta, Canley Vale and Canley Heights.
Residents from Cabramatta, Canley Vale and Canley Heights can expect to receive a brochure outlining the new service in the next few days.
The revised brochure outlines the new Brown Line bus route, which began operating on Monday this week.
The Brown Line bus route will run every Monday from 9.30am to 3.30pm (excluding public holidays) and will operate instead of the old Sunday Green Line bus service. The Brown Line bus route is a modified version of the cancelled State Government bus service around Cabramatta (Route 88) and will complement existing state services.
Modifications to the Red line bus route commuter have been made to better connect with the new rail timetable. This service is a Point A-B pick-up and drop-off service only; there are no stops in between.
There are now five free bus community routes offered by Fairfield City Council:
