Proposed Changes

The NSW Government is responding to the changing face of residential areas, business districts and commercial centres by improving transport links, simplifying networks, providing more direct services and creating greater travel opportunities for the community.

The bus network for the Newcastle area is complicated so we have proposed to update the existing routes with changes that:

  • will better utilise the strategic corridors identified in the Unsworth Report, and
  • are designed to be simple and easy to understand.

The proposed bus network was developed with a focus on connectivity of services and in response to comments from the community to improve travel time for commuters and access to places like John Hunter Hospital and Newcastle University and regional shopping centres.

It has been proposed to operate the following routes along strategic road corridors which will link major retail centres including the CBD, Westfield Kotara, Glendale Super Centre, Charlestown, Lake Macquarie Fair and Jesmond. They will also link major employment and education centres including Newcastle University and John Hunter Hospital with other regional services to Belmont, Charlestown, Glendale, Wallsend, Mayfield, Merewether and Warners Bay.
