Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) has announced that Albury’s residents are set to benefit from a new bus network that will deliver more than 300 extra services, new routes to Albury Airport and station and the city’s first Sunday and public holiday services.
The new network is being rolled out under the New South Wales (NSW) Liberal and Nationals government’s 16 Regional Cities Services Improvement Program, in order to deliver better public transport for the regions.
Member for Albury, Justin Clancy, said: “It is important that people in Albury have a public transport network that suits them, so we spent time talking to residents to find out what they wanted. The improved bus routes and timetables will make a real difference to the Albury community, giving people greater flexibility to get to school, work, shops and to access essential services in the city and across the border in Wodonga.”
Minister for Regional Transport and Roads, Sam Farraway, said: “We listened and are delivering a 51% increase in services for Albury with improved bus routes and timetables that will make a tangible difference to daily life for the community, providing people with new travel options and flexibility to get to school, work, shops and to access essential services.”

Some of the significant benefits for Albury under the roll-out include a service with 30 minute intervals between Lavington and Albury, now connecting seamlessly with Wodonga services.
In addition, there will also be more services for Thurgoona, including new services all week, as well as services on Sundays and public holidays, between Thurgoona and Albury, via Borella Road and more timely, direct services to Albury Base Hospital.
Residents and visitors will also benefit from new Albury Airport and railway station bus services and, in a first for Albury, some routes will introduce services on Sunday and public holidays while others will expand to offer more early morning trips.
