Students returning to school after the holidays (which start at the end of next week, July 3) might be a bit confused when their normal bus pulls up bearing a different number.
It is however all part of 'the plan' ... the NSW Transport Connected Bus Program, which starts on Monday July 6 and is designed to support the Government's new Transport for NSW wayfinding standards.
Under the program selected route and school services in the region will be renumbered ... with no change to timetable or routes operated.
All schools in the Nambucca Shire will be affected.
For example students travelling to and from Bowraville Central School will see the following changes:
Services to Frank Partridge Primary, Macksville Adventist, Macksville High, Macksville Public, Nambucca Heads High, Nambucca Heads Public, Nambucca Valley Christian Community, St Mary's Primary and Tallowood Steiner Schools will all be affected.
For more information about the changes for each individual school, please visit the Busways website.
