    • the new suburb of Riverlea Park, to be connected with VirginiaSalisbury and Elizabeth via new bus routes 402 and 450 (replacing bus route 900).
    • Lightsview with bus route 206 to be upgraded to ‘Go Zone’ frequency.
    • Croydon Park and Dudley Park with modified bus routes 230 and 232 returned via Days Road, Pym Street and Harrison Road.
    • GlenaltaBlackwoodHawthorndene and Belair to receive more frequent trips to the City on weekends via bus routes 195 and 196.
    • Salisbury, Parafield Gardens, Paralowie and Mawson Lakes to receive timing changes to bus route 411 for better connectivity with rail services.

    Routes 195 and 196

    Bus routes 195 and 196 will be upgraded on Saturday, Sunday and public holidays from every 4 hours to every 2 hours.Shared route sections along Belair Road will provide a trip every hour on weekends instead of 2-hourly.
