Central Coast - new bus network

01 Nov 2010

Busways are pleased to announce the new integrated bus network operating on new timetables for the Central Coast, commencing Monday 8 November 2010. 

A more efficient and effective bus network has been developed to service the CentralCoastregion, following community consultation undertaken late 2009. The new network introduces more direct services, improved links and frequencies, new destinations and more services in operation during the evening and on weekends. Passenger will notice several new bus routes and alterations to existing routes.

Many network changes have been a direct result of the feedback obtained during community consultation.  A new route 70 will link the Woy Woy area with Gosford Hospital seven days a week, offering seamless travel for those with medical appointments or for visiting purposes.  Route 96 will provide a peak hour link to and from Wyee Station for the suburbs of Budgewoi, Halekulani, Buff Point, San Remoand Blue Haven.  Routes 93 and 94 are new peak hour commuter trips from Noraville and Budgewoi respectively, through to Wyong Station and Westfield Tuggerah without the need to travel via Lake Haven Shops.

Route 95 and peak hour 95X have been introduced in response to community feedback for better bus services around the suburbs south of Lake Macquarie.  95X provides a direct link between Gwandalan, Summerland Point, Lake Munmorah and Wyee Station, and route 95 links Gwandalan, Summerland Point, Lake Munmorah Chain Valley Bay, Wyee Point and Mannering Park to Morisset Station and shops. 

Strong bus corridors have been created which offer fast and frequent trips to major destinations.  Frequencies have improved in a variety of areas such as Empire Bay, Kincumber, Green Point, Woy Woy Bay, West Tascott, Point Clare, Kariong, Ourimbah, Narara, Lisarow, Warnervale, Hamlyn Terrace, Woongarrah, Wadalba, Kanwal, Noraville, Budgewoi, San Remo and Blue Haven, with many of these improvements occurring at nights and on weekends, to offer customers better travel opportunities. 

Major shopping destinations continue to be well served with Erina Fair, Westfield Tuggerah and Lake Haven Shops all receiving additional trips on weekdays and weekends. Glenmore Village, The Heritage Estate and Bevington Shores Manufactured Home Village will also receive more services and some links to new destinations.

A new Bus Network Guide has also been developed for the region with all the information passengers need to understand which buses they can catch, services they connect to and where they take you. The guide contains maps, information on destinations, bus routes by suburb, ticketing information and more.

Some route numbers have changed so passengers are urged to check the new timetables. Timetable information is available on the Busways website or at www.131500.com.au or by phoning 131 500. Network Guides and printed timetables will be delivered to households in early November 2010.
