500 NEW BUS SERVICES IN BATHURST

More than 500 additional weekly bus services are set to improve connectivity across the Bathurst region from Monday 28th June, and provide residents with more travel options than ever before.


Minister for Regional Transport and Roads and Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said the extra services are part of the NSW Government’s 16 Regional Cities program, which is boosting bus services and providing more travel options for customers.


“This is a game changer for public transport in Bathurst, with a new timetable that provides better connectivity, more travel options and more services in off-peak times and on weekends,” Mr Toole said.



“Following consultation with key stakeholders and feedback from the Bathurst community, we’re providing better connections to the CBD and train station, and better access to areas of growth in East Kelso, Laffing Waters and Eglinton.


“The new services will also improve travel options for students travelling to TAFE or Charles Sturt University, as well as travel to essential community services such the hospital and shopping centres.”

“These changes are on top of the 57 additional services announced last July that are already being well used by local residents. The additional services will also provide a local jobs boost with Buslines currently recruiting new bus drivers to support the growing network.”


Updated timetable information will be available from 21 June 2021 at www.transportnsw.info where customers will be able to plan their trip using the new services.


Information about the new bus network across Bathurst including school services is available at the local bus operator’s webpage, Buslines at https://www.buslinesgroup.com.au/bathurst-maps-timetables
