New bus stop for Port of Air­lie

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE PORT of Air­lie is set to re­ceive 129 new bus ser­vices a week cour­tesy of a new bus stop.

The Depart­ment of Trans­port and Main Roads said ser­vices started op­er­at­ing from the Port of Air­lie tran­sit hub from Mon­day.

The new bus stop aims to de­liver 20 ser­vices from the hub ev­ery day dur­ing the week with 16 on Satur­day and 13 on Sun­day and pub­lic hol­i­days.

Whit­sun­day Tran­sit owner Dar­ren Cross­ley said they had worked to­gether with The Depart­ment of Trans­port and Main Roads, Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil and Cruise Whit­sun- days to im­ple­ment the route change.

“We re­main com­mit­ted to im­prov­ing our ser­vices in line with the ur­ban ex­pan­sion in our re­gion, whilst at the same time pro­vid­ing the most con­ve­nient pub­lic trans­port ser­vice for our cus­tomers,” Mr Cross­ley said.

“Our timeta­bles are al­ready de­signed to meet trains at Proser­pine Rail­way Sta­tion, and the ex­ten­sion to the tran­sit fa­cil­ity is a fur­ther bonus for our cus­tomers.”
