A new bus service will begin this month for customers travelling between Dapto and the University of Wollongong, New South Wales.

Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian says the State Government is committed to providing public transport services where and when they’re needed and this latest investment will be a welcome boost for Wollongong University students and staff.

"I am pleased to announce new bus route 41 will travel between Dapto Station and the University of Wollongong in time for the start of semester," she says.

Customers will be able to choose from 14 services every weekday – or 70 services a week – which coincide with the majority of university lecture start and finish times.

"The new bus service has been made possible thanks to a $92 million investment by the NSW Government for brand-new buses to replace older vehicles and provide new routes where they’re needed across the state," says Berejiklian.

"With more and more houses going up in West Dapto every week, it’s important we make sure there are improvements to public transport to keep up with demand.

 "We want people to know they can leave their car at home and rely on trains and buses to get where they need to go.

"With improvements such as the Opal card, new and upgraded stations, more commuter parking and new services – we are transforming the way people travel in NSW."
