The Public Transport Strategy Report (1.82mB PDF) investigates various modes of public transport including their potential for use in Tweed Shire at strategic overview level and discusses benefits and weaknesses associated with the modes. Mode options considered are heavy rail, light rail, bus ways, bus lanes and combinations of these modes. An analysis of the available public transport modes indicates that a rapid transit corridor bus system is the optimal rapid transport mode for Tweed Shire because of the Shire's relatively low current and future population and its dispersed patterns of development.

Catch the bus

There are more than 280 daily bus services to shopping centres, clubs, pools, hospitals, colleges and other local destinations. A public transport ticket, the Regional Excursion Daily (RED), can be purchased to assist elderly people with the cost of transport. The all day ticket will be sold by the bus driver when passengers present a valid Pensioner Concession card, NSW Seniors card or War Widower/s card. The RED ticket lets you travel on more than one service within the network service area during the day it is purchased. This allows you to take multiple trips on buses in the service network on the same day.

The RED ticket is available on all scheduled commercial local bus services (but not on local school services), Countrylink bus services or interstate coach services.

See Going Places to find transport information for the area.

See Surfside Busline Services to view information specific to Surfside Buslines.

The Rydon transport program is part of the Tweed Byron Ballina Community Transport service. Rydon is for groups of 5 or more young people aged 12-24 who need help with transport in the Murwillumbah District. For more information please visit the Rydon Website.
