The NSW government has introduced a pilot on-demand public transport option to Macquarie. You simply book a pickup and you are picked up by a full sized bus. This new service is available to West Ward residents who live on the western side of the Pacific Highway. No information is provided about expected travel times between locations or how long you might need to wait to be picked up, The service might prove useful when the Epping to Chatswood railway is closed later this year.
