Greyhound Australia has announced changes to Central West Queensland services that will save passengers hours in travel time.

Chief Executive Officer Robert Thomas says travellers in towns such as Charleville and Blackall, heading to Emerald and Rockhampton, will now be able to connect between services in Barcaldine.

"Greyhound is always looking for ways to improve regional services and cater to the requests from regional communities," he says.

"These new service changes are just one way Greyhound is improving their support of the Central West region and implementing feedback received on our current services.

"This means that people in Charleville and Blackall wanting to go to Emerald, Mackay or Rockhampton will now be able to quickly connect to the Longreach to Emerald service at Barcaldine.

"It also means passengers making the reverse trip to Charleville or Blackall will also be able to connect to the service in Barcaldine.

"It is great news for the region with hours in travel time being saved."

Services affected by the changes include GX493 Brisbane – Mount Isa, GX487 Longreach – Emerald and GX486 Emerald – Longreach and will be effective as of May 4.

Thomas says there has never been a better time to travel to the Central West Queensland region with the announcement of these service changes and great offers in the market such as Greyhound’s ‘Mates Rates’.

"Mates Rates is just one of the offers we currently have in the market where travellers receive 50 percent off a second ticket when a full fare is purchased," he says.

"Not only will you receive cost efficient travel with Greyhound but you will also be travelling ‘green’, as we are one of the most environmentally efficient travel operators in Australia.

"Greyhound gives passengers the option to carbon offset their travel through our Travel Green program.

"The program supports Kyoto compliant projects around the world that help reduce carbon emissions across the globe."
