Better bus services for Queanbeyan

Queanbeyan will receive 90 new additional weekly bus services as part of bus network improvements in the region from Monday 23 January 2023.

There will be more buses more often, faster and more direct routes, and new weekend services to connect you more reliably to where you need to go.

The new bus network includes better cross-border connections with Canberra and the ACT, as well as improved services to Queanbeyan Station, Canberra Airport, Service NSW and TAFE.

Every day, customers travelling from Jerrabomberra and Googong to Canberra will save up to an hour in journey time under the new changes, and residents in the growing suburb of Tralee will receive town bus services for the first time.

If you have questions about the changes to services, please email regionalcitiesprogram@transport.nsw.gov.au
