EXTRA BUS SERVICES TO SUPPORT BUSHFIRE RECOVERY

The NSW Government has acted swiftly to introduce temporary bus services and additional stops for existing services to support locals affected by bushfires in southern NSW.

“Transport for NSW has worked with Sapphire Coast Buslines, Priors Bus Service and Ulladulla Buslines to expand their services to deliver better connections to NSW Health, Service NSW, Disaster Welfare, and the Red Cross and Salvation Army services.

Extra Services will run until 29 March 2020, unless recovery centres close earlier.

Eden to Bega

  • An extra return trip from Bega to Eden Monday to Friday. (11:00am from Bega Hospital and 1:29pm from Eden)
  • An extra return trip from Eden to Bega to the Saturday timetable. ( 10:30am from Eden and 12:30pm from Bega)
  • Services for Sunday, running to the current Saturday timetable for the region.

2020 Bus Passes are out. See below for New School Route Number & Name Changes.

.

Bus passes have been printed and when you receive yours you will notice new numbers on the bus passes this year.

The newly standardised school route numbers and names have changed to ensure that school buses are easily identifiable. All new school bus numbers will start with a capital ‘S’ followed by a new 3 digit bus number,  e.g. S350. For the bus passes the letter “S” has been dropped and just number is displayed on the pass but the full number will be displayed on the front of all the buses.

Apart from the numbers changing the other main difference is that buses that double as a school bus and route bus will only display the route number going forward and no longer the school bus number. Ie old school bus 1am from Eden to Bega will now only display its route service number of 890 for its run. For a few runs where the route service is only part of the school shift then while in route service it will display the route number and when out of service it will display the school bus number.

Please contact Sapphire Coast Buslines if you have any queries or concerns about the new number on your bus pass this year by calling 6495 6452 or you can email paulj@scbuslines.com.au.

See below for the new bus numbers.
