Trials of new public transport options for regional NSW

Starting in 2018, NSW TrainLink proposes to trial new coach connections to better connect regional communities. The proposed services would provide new links between:

  • Tamworth and Newcastle
  • Tamworth and Dubbo
  • Tamworth and Port Macquarie.

Key benefits

Each trial aims to provide easy connections between regional hubs for better access to medical and health providers, business, shopping, recreational activities or to catch up with family and friends.

Have your say

We are currently seeking feedback the proposed trials between Tamworth and Newcastle, Tamworth and Dubbo and Tamworth and Port Macquarie.  We want to know your preferences for departure and arrival times, frequency of travel, and food and drink options. Your feedback will be vital in shaping these pilots for when they go live.

We want to get them right, so you can easily use them.

To find out more and provide feedback on the trials, a series of community information sessions will be held in Tamworth, Dubbo, Port Macquarie and Newcastle.
