Tweed bus network revamp
Transport for NSW has introduced a new bus network for the Tweed, with more services along major routes to key destinations and expanded service hours.
It’s the first time the Tweed has had a bus network with timetabled connections and longer service hours, providing customers with more reliable public transport, higher frequency services on key corridors and the ability to get to places they want to go, at the time they want to go.
With more than 450 additional weekly services, the network gives customers better access to places of employment, education, shopping and services. New services include 160 extra weekly services before 7am and after 6pm and 50 weekly services before 5am and after 9pm.
Every route will have a direct service or timetabled connection to The Tweed Hospital. Services to the hospital have been improved with regular services between 5am and 11pm weekdays, with buses every 15 minutes during most parts of the day.
Kingscliff TAFE is easier to get to with the 601 route doubling in frequency and the new 609 route from Murwillumbah.
The new 600 route and enhanced 601 route respond to high demand trips along key corridors and provide customers with early morning and night time services six days a week. The 600 links Banora Point to Tweed Mall (on the Queensland border) via Tweed City and The Tweed Hospital. The 601 links Kingscliff to Tweed Heads West via Tweed City, The Tweed Hospital and Coolangatta.
The new bus network came into effect on Monday 16 December 2019.
