More bus services on the way for Nowra

The NSW government says the additional services will help Nowra locals travel easier

Residents in Greater Nowra will soon be benefitting from greater travel options thanks to more than 250 additional bus services as part of the NSW government’s 16 Regional Cities Services Improvement Program.

As part of the program there will be a more convenient and frequent service between Vincentia and Nowra and more frequent and better connections to other modes of transport with improved links between Bomaderry Station and Nowra CBD. 

Parliamentary Secretary and Member for South Coast Shelley Hancock says the new timetable and bus routes would rollout from Monday 29 August. 

“We want to ensure our public transport network meets the specific needs of the Greater Nowra community,” Hancock says.  

 “We are committed to getting this right. We spent time talking to the community and they told us they wanted more reliable services and better connections. 

 “We listened and I’m delighted to announce Greater Nowra will receive more than 250 additional bus services each week.”

Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Sam Farraway says the improved bus routes and timetables will make life easier for the community to get from A to B with more services to choose from. 

“There will be greater travel options for the Nowra community to get to school, work, shops and health providers, and more buses running in off-peak times and on weekends,” Farraway says.

“It’s a good win for nurses, hospitality workers or shift workers who may have had to turn down extra hours in the past because of the difficulty of getting home, these additional services provide more flexibility allowing them to get on with what they do best.

“Better bus services is just one way the NSW government is securing a brighter future for the people of NSW and I am pleased to see Nowra included in this program.”
