Greyhound Australia is launching a new shuttle bus service this week between Brisbane and Byron Bay.

Chief Executive Officer Robert Thomas says the new service is being offered in response to increased demand for buses between Brisbane and the coast.

"More people are beginning to discover the benefits of travelling by bus to the beach," he says.

"Not only does it remove the stress of driving in heavy summer traffic, it also eliminates the hassle of trying to find a car park at a popular beach spot.

"Greyhound buses are air-conditioned, spacious and comfortable so passengers can relax and enjoy the journey.

"We’ll also be keeping the heat off travellers this summer by offering free bottles of chilled water to passengers on the Brisbane to Byron Bay route."

Greyhound already operates services between Brisbane, Byron Bay and other popular beach havens such as Surfers Paradise and Noosa several times a day.

Thomas says the launch of the new shuttle service between Brisbane and Bryon Bay will provide passengers with an even greater number of options for getting to and from the coast.

"This new shuttle service will be perfect for tourists and locals wanting to visit family and friends or take a short holiday break," he says.

"We’re expecting it to be particularly popular with the many backpackers who visit the Gold Coast and Byron Bay all year round.

"Passengers will also have the option of purchasing a special Byron Bay experience such as a surfing lesson or kayaking adventure through the Greyhound Adventures program."

One-way fares from Brisbane to the Gold Coast start from $20 and fares from Brisbane to Bryon Bay start from $32. One-way fares from the Gold Coast to Byron Bay start from $20.
