2017-08-27: Route 833 to Carrum

PTV have announced that effective 27 August 2017, services on Ventura’s Route 833 between Frankston and Carrum Downs will be extended west to Carrum through Sandhurst and Patterson Lakes, along Thompson Rd and McLeod Rd.

For the first time, residents of Carrum Downs will no longer have to backtrack south to Kananook or Frankston to access train services, a long-standing issue.

The current half-hourly weekday and hourly weekend timetable will be maintained.
