Bus and Coach Services and the 2019 NSW State Election
Moving People NSW – Measures to Shape Our Communities
BusNSW is the peak body for the NSW private bus and coach industry. BusNSW’s mission is to foster the efficient and sustainable growth of public transport and in doing so, to promote the benefits of bus and coach transport in NSW.
Buses play a vital role in delivering public transport in NSW and each year carry around 332 million passengers, including almost 580,000 students travelling to and from school each day. More passengers are carried by bus in NSW than by any other mode including rail.
Bus and coach transport is a vital part of an integrated mobility solution for NSW. The flexibility offered by buses, their ability to operate at short notice along a myriad of routes and with a minimum of infrastructure spending, and their capacity to carry a variable passenger load (from small buses to high capacity buses) make them an ideal solution to meet a range of transport needs.
The bus and coach industry recognise the improvements made to public transport by the Government in NSW, however some additional measures could reduce congestion and create more desirable places to live and work.
The industry believes that these strategies provide a platform for further and substantial improvements to public transport over the next term of Government in NSW.
The twenty measures included in the BusNSW Election Brochure have been divided into those for the Greater Sydney metropolitan area, Regional NSW, Tourist and Charter sector, and Other strategies.
