Arriving now - Broken Hill to Mildura and Adelaide coach services
14 June 2019
New coach services connecting Broken Hill with Mildura and Adelaide will begin this month as part of a NSW TrainLink trial.Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole said existing transport links between Broken Hill and the two cities were limited which meant people often needed to take flights or drive themselves.
“These new trial services will make it easier for customers to attend medical appointments and go shopping, or to visit family and friends,” Mr Toole said.
“Mildura is a popular destination for Broken Hill residents. The service will allow them to travel directly to Mildura Central Mall and return home a few hours later on the same day.
“They will also have the option of connecting with flights and other coach or train services to Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, as well as many regional centres.”
The six-month trial follows consultation by NSW TrainLink with the Broken Hill community in face-to-face information sessions and online surveys, with the feedback helping to shape the trial.
The new services will be more cost effective than other interstate services, with senior and pensioner discounts available for eligible customers. Children 15 and under can travel for $1 with an adult on all services.
Customers travelling between Broken Hill and Adelaide will pay $88.77 for peak full fare, while pensioners and concession cardholders will pay $44.38.
When travelling between Broken Hill and Mildura, customers will pay $53.03 for peak full fare, while pensioners and concession cardholders will pay $26.52 or $2.50 if they qualify for the Country Pensioner Excursion Ticket.
Customers can book seats on the trial coach services, which starts Monday 24 June, from today online at Transport NSW Regional or by phoning NSW TrainLink on 13 22 32.
Concessions are available for eligible customers.
