Bus boost for Googong
Customers in the growing suburb of Googong will soon have more travel options with 68 extra
weekly bus services for the 837 bus route coming online in September.Deputy Premier and Member for Monaro John Barilaro said the additional services were part of
the 16 Regional Cities Program being rolled out across the State.
“In recent years the suburb of Googong has experienced significant growth and the population is
only going to continue to increase. The extra bus services will give customers more choice and
flexibility as they go about their daily tasks,” Mr Barilaro said.
“The 12 new services every weekday and 8 new Saturday services for Route 837 is a real boost to the wider Queanbeyan bus network, which will now offer 840 services a week.”
Minister for Regional Transport and Roads said it was great to see more services being delivered
under the 16 Regional Cities Services Improvement Program.
“The program aims to identify gaps and opportunities with current bus services in each city and deliver improvements to better meet customer needs,” Mr Toole said.
“We have listened to the community and implemented network changes that will improve
connectivity in and around Queanbeyan.”
The extra Route 837 services will commence on Monday 21 September and customers can plan their trip at www.transportnsw.info from Thursday 17 September.
