30 August 2016 Bus Transport Improvements

Bus Shelter

New bus shelters are currently being installed across the Coffs Harbour local government area.

Shelters in Azalea Avenue, Coffs Harbour, and Pacific Street, Corindi, are being renewed while brand new shelters are being installed at Solitary Islands Way near Sapphire Crescent, Nightingale Street in Woolgoolga and at Sandys Beach Drive, Sandy Beach.

They are being funded by Transport for NSW through the Country Passenger Transport Infrastructure Grants programme. The sites were chosen following consultation with local bus operators.

The design of each shelter is unique to Coffs Harbour City Council and is intended to reflect the coastal character of the city. They are also constructed to be accessible to people with disabilities.

Public transport is important for those without easy access to cars and is also important for young people, those with disabilities and the elderly. The more people that use buses also helps reduce parking and traffic congestion in retail centres.

Motorists are reminded that they cannot park or stop 20 metres before and 10 metres after a bus stop. These restrictions are clearly marked by bus stop pole or bus zone signs.​
