Snowy Mountains bus trial

COVID-19 Update – Bus service paused

Transport for NSW regrets to advise that due to the evolving COVID-19 outbreak, and in response to stay-at-home orders introduced across all of NSW, we have paused the Snowy Mountains bus service trial. The alpine snow resorts are also currently closed as a result of these restrictions.

All customers with an existing booking on the Snowy Mountains bus service will be contacted about their booking and are entitled to a full refund on their ticket price. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Transport for NSW will continue to monitor the evolving situation and attempt to reinstate the bus service if possible in the current alpine season, and investigate future opportunities to trial this service again.

For any questions, please contact snowybustrial@transport.nsw.gov.au.

Let public transport take you to the slopes this season

The new return bus service is the most affordable and stress-free way to get from Jindabyne to Perisher or Thredbo safely and reliably this ski season.

The service is being trialled for the first time in 2021 and is the only public transport option providing connections to Perisher and Thredbo.

  • Avoid the stress of drivng in poor weather conditions, heavy traffic, fitting snow chains or navigating icy roads
  • Don't risk being turned away when car parks fill up
  • Sit back and relax on your way back to Jindy
