The NSW government has announced it is delivering on an election commitment with the delivery of expanded bus options for students at Bulli High School.

For students travelling between Helensburgh and Bulli High School, new and improved transport options are being rolled out this month to provide students bus transport options.

Currently, students can only catch the train, with there being no bus service. From term two, three new services will be added to the bus timetable to give students more options.

The Route 2 bus will have two new services on weekdays, extended further north from Stanwell Park to include Helensburgh town and an additional Bulli High School stop.

A new weekday bus service will help students catch an afternoon train home from Helensburgh station, with students currently waiting almost 20 minutes at the station for the Route 15 bus service to depart.

An additional Route 15 service will help plug this gap, with Premier Illawarra operating the additional services to reduce waiting times.

“I’m delighted to announce these new bus services, which are a win for Helensburgh families whose children attend Bulli High School,” NSW transport minister Jo Haylen says.

“Improving services between Helensburgh and Bulli High School was an important election commitment and we know they’ll be appreciated by students and local parents.

“The Illawarra was one of the first places in the state to host a Bus Passenger Forum, where the taskforce heard from locals who shared what improvements they wanted to see across the region. I’m glad we’ve been able to act on some of the feedback we received.”
