Transport - Busways

Busways provides scheduled route and school bus services to communities in the Port Macquarie-Hastings region. 

Bus routes are determined by Busways, in conjunction with Transport for NSW. 

For the latest information on Bus Route changes and updates please refer to the Busways website.  School and community bus timetables routes by suburb and downloadable PDF timetables are also available online in addition to route network maps.

Bus stops and shelters

We work with Busways and Transport for NSW to decide where the buses will stop and we are responsible for providing bus bays, signs, shelters and seats.

You can contact us on Ph: 6581 8111 or email: council@pmhc.nsw.gov.au to request a new bus bay or shelter. We will work with Busways to prioritise requests based on usage and a range of other factors including traffic volumes, bus routes, site suitability, safety and the availability of alternate shelter structures in the vicinity .

We rely solely on grant funding from the State and Federal Government to install new bus stops and shelters.

We received $176,000 for bus shelters as part of the State Government Country Passenger Transport Infrastructure Grants Scheme and a further $135,000 through the Federal Government Roads and Community Infrastructure Program to be spend across the 2020/21 and 2021/22 financial years.
