From Wollondilly to Wollongong, the popular Beach Bus will make the trip again this summer, freely transporting Wollondilly residents “from the bush to the beach” for some relief from the heat.

“A big thank you to Tahmoor Coking Coal who have kept this popular service going for a decade through their generous sponsorship, giving our residents the opportunity to access the beach,”  Mayor of Wollondilly Matt Gould said.

“We hope we can continue this service for many more years.”

Tahmoor Coking Coal has worked together with Wollondilly Council and   Picton Buslines and to deliver this free bus service to the community.
