We’re building Melbourne’s first dedicated busway – starting with a new park and ride in Bulleen.

Bulleen Park & Ride will be a premium bus station including:

  • a 5000 square metre green roof community park
  • parking for up to 370 cars underneath
  • dedicated quick drop off and pick-up bays
  • walking and cycling paths that connect to Koonung Creek Trail
  • bike storage cage
  • ramps, toilets, and myki services.

The Victorian Minister for Planning approved the Urban Design and Landscape Plan (UDLP) for Bulleen Park & Ride in March 2021. You can see a copy of the approved UDLP below:

To get Bulleen Park & Ride open 4 years earlier than planned, it will be built in 2 stages.

The UDLP shows the first stage, where buses will enter and exit Bulleen Park & Ride from a new signalised intersection at Thompsons Road and will use a turning circle to drop passengers off and pick them up. Buses will start using Bulleen Park & Ride in 2023.

When the entire busway is complete in 2028, the turning circle will be replaced with busway lanes in both directions. This stage will be built as part of the upgrades to the Eastern Freeway.
