Additional route 262 and 263 buses from Cameron Park to Charlestown will be rolled out over the next 12 months as part of an extra 2,000 extra weekly bus services across NSW.
Treasurer Dominic Perrottet and Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance today confirmed the increased services will be part of the $1.5 billion investment for bus services throughout New South Wales, including regional and metropolitan bus services, school services and financing of new and replacement buses to cater for New South Wales services.
“It is the NSW Government’s good economic management which is allowing us to provide people across the State with the services they need and deserve,” Mr Perrottet said.
Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said the Government was focused on delivering improved public transport services were people need it the most.
“We have invested record amounts into improving and creating more and more public transport options for people right across Sydney and NSW.”
Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter Scot MacDonald MLC said this was great news for the Cessnock, Wallsend and Charlestown communities.
“We’ve already added more than 2,300 extra weekly bus services to the Newcastle and Hunter region since 2011,” Mr MacDonald said.
“Customers using routes 262 and 263 from Cameron Park to Charlestown will soon benefit from even more weekly services, giving them greater travel options and improved access to Cardiff Station.”
The additional services will be introduced later this year.
