After weeks at the negotiating table, Member for Mayo Rebekha Sharkie has successfully lobbied for a mix of connection and direct bus services from the south coast to the city.
The new timetable will see locals from Victor Harbor, Goolwa and surrounds, able to make it into the city by 8:30am, with a direct route to Marion with easy connections to Flinders Medical Centre and the Universtiy.
There will be a direct mid morning service to the city with one returning in the afternoon and more weekend services between Victor and Goolwa.
Ms Sharkie says the hybrid timetable offered different options to meet the different needs of residents.
“I’d like to thank the people of the South Coast for giving us their feedback through our community survey, and I’d like to thank State Transport Minister Stephen Mullighan, the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) and Link SA for listening to that feedback and working out a timetable within their budget,”
“I think together we’ve been able to blend the best of both worlds."
The new timetable, created after Rebekha Sharkie heard feedback through a round of community forums, will begin on October 15 for a trial period before the SA Government looks to renew the service in April 2018.
