New bus services for Tweed Heads

Tweed will gain more than 450 new additional weekly bus services as part of a regional growth bus program to improve bus services in regional areas, with more services to popular locations like Kingscliff TAFE and longer operating hours on key routes.

The new services include 160 extra weekly services before 7am and after 6pm and 50 new weekly services before 5am and after 9pm.

Every route in the Tweed will have a direct or timetabled connecting service to The Tweed Hospital, Tweed Mall and the Queensland border. Services to the hospital have been improved between 5am and 11pm weekdays, with buses every 15 minutes during most parts of the day. Kingscliff TAFE will be easier to access with the 601 doubling in frequency and a new 609 route from Murwillumbah.

The additional and improved services will start from Monday 16 December 2019.
