Two routes were developed to service different parts of the LGA, specifically areas that did not have any public transport options available. The Strathfield Connector not only connects residents to local shops, restaurants and businesses but also increases social inclusion by providing an alternative means of travel to attend Council run events with bus stops placed near the Strathfield Library and various parks. Running 7 days a week, every 30 minutes from 7am - 7pm, the main stops include the following:  Strathfield Square DFO Strathfield Library  Homebush shops Homebush West shops Strathfield South Sydney Markets For more information, please visit Council’s website www.strathfield.nsw.gov.au or contact Council on 9748 9999.
