Planning ahead couldn’t be easier now either, with our new Travel Insights data visualisation tool is now live, giving you up to date information about how and when to travel on public transport as restrictions begin to ease.

Public transport capacity will increase from July 1, in line with NSW Health advice. Health experts have advised that physical distancing capacity on all modes of transport can now be increased in a COVIDSafe way.
A Waratah train will now be able to carry 68 customers per carriage, up from 32, a typical two-door bus will be able to carry 23 customers, up from 12 and a Freshwater ferry will be able to carry 450 customers, up from 245. Walking trips to and from your station or bus stop also help you find your recommended 30 minutes physical activity every day too.
