NSW TrainLink plans to trial new coach connections to better connect regional communities. These services will provide new links between:

  • Tamworth and Newcastle
  • Tamworth and Dubbo
  • Tamworth and Port Macquarie
  • Wagga Wagga and Albury
  • Goulburn and Sydney
  • Goulburn and Canberra

The trial of the new connections between Tamworth and Newcastle, Dubbo and Port Macquarie started on Monday 12 March 2018.

Consultation for the proposed trials between Wagga Wagga and Albury (pdf 575KB), Goulburn and Canberra and between Goulburn and Sydney (pdf 1.6MB) was carried out during February and March 2018. 

Feedback is currently being evaluated to help NSW TrainLink assess demand for the trials and design services that meet the needs of local communities. 

Key benefits

Each trial aims to provide new connections for regional communities, whether it be for commuters, people attending medical or business appointments, shopping trips, recreational activities or to catch up with family and friends.
