The trial same-day coach service connecting Cootamundra with Canberra three days a week has become a permanent fixture.
In answer to a query by the Herald, Transport NSW replied that starting July 1, the service between Wagga and Canberra became a regular timetabled service in a boost for regional transport connectivity.
The service goes via Cootamundra on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and via Gundagai on Mondays and Fridays.
It leaves Cootamundra Station at 8.25am, arriving in Canberra at 10.25. It returns at 5.25pm, arriving 7.25. Fur further travel to Sydney, it also calls in at the Canberra railway station, as well as two hospitals and Queanbeyan.
With meticulous cleaning, coach and train services were maintained throughout the pandemic, although patronage was down 80% at its height. Physical distancing is being relaxed, but due to the concerns in Victoria, Melbourne rail services will keep the more stringent protocols.
