Bus service to make detour to Ben Lomond
BEN LOMOND locals will benefit from a new daily coach transport trial starting just in time for Christmas. The pre-existing Tenterfield to Armidale daily return coach service will now call into Ben Lomond, ensuring the community has access to public transport.
Starting this week, passengers will be able to board at Ben Lomond and travel to Armidale, before potentially catching another service onto Sydney.
Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall said it was now over to the community to determine if the trial would become a permanent fixture.
“This new service will initially commence on a trial basis, allowing the Government to make changes in response to feedback and improve connections to better service the community,” he said.
“We have had great success with earlier coach trials and look forward to seeing customers get on board and show their support for this one.
“When it comes to these services it really is a numbers game and the more people we have utilising the route, the more likely it is it will continue.”
The new service will start from this Wednesday, December 11th, and will be delivered and operated by NSW TrainLink.
People can book tickets on these services at www.transportnsw.info/regional or by phoning 13 22 32.
