Bus improvements for Albury, Armidale and Tamworth

Three more regional cities in NSW will benefit from improvements to their bus networks later this month, with the introduction of hundreds of additional weekly bus services and more travel options for customers.

Armidale and Tamworth will have additional or extended services rolled out on their bus networks from 23 November, and Albury will see similar improvements from 26 November.

All cities will receive more services on weekdays and weekends, with longer operating hours allowing customers to travel into the evenings.

The three cities will join Bathurst, Orange, Dubbo, Parkes, Griffith and Port Macquarie, which received additional and extended services in July 2020, Queanbeyan, Grafton and Nowra-Bomaderry, which received upgrades in September 2020 and Coffs Harbour and Lismore which received changes in October 2020.
