Changes to Austinmer to Wollongong bus timetable

BUS passengers are to benefit from extended services connecting Austinmer to Wollongong on Friday nights and new services on Sunday mornings, starting this weekend.

A Transport for NSW spokesperson said, local bus operator Dions, alongside Transport for NSW, amended its timetable based on customer demand, and to provide more benefits to passengers.

“These changes will better service our passengers travelling between Wollongong and Austinmer, and help improve timetable consistency across the week,” the spokesperson said.

“All Friday and Saturday late night Route 90 services will now operate to/from Austinmer.”

Route 90 between Wollongong and Austinmer will have an additional two Sunday morning services, arriving inbound to Wollongong earlier at 8.50am and outbound to Austinmer at 8.07am.
As part of these changes, and due to low patronage, there will be two fewer Friday and Saturday late night services on each day. On a Saturday night the last bus from Thirroul will leave 16 minutes earlier.

Passengers are encouraged to visit to view updated timetables and plan their trip.

One thought on “Changes to Austinmer to Wollongong bus timetable

  1. with regard to the buses low patronage is caused by NOT integrating the train and bus timetables like they do with the ferries in Sydney. and bringing the buses into the forecourt at Thirroul Station and waiting for the train again like they do for the ferries in Sydney common sense
