Community feedback sought on proposed new LinkSA Fleurieu bus services

When: From Friday 16 June 2017 to Thursday 13 July 2017

Community feedback sought on proposed new LinkSA Fleurieu bus services

The State Government and Federal Member for Mayo Rebekha Sharkie are seeking community feedback on proposed changes to the LinkSA Goolwa to Adelaide bus route.

LinkSA reviewed the Fleurieu Peninsula service and forwarded a proposal to the State Government, following a survey by Ms Sharkie.

Community feedback is now being sought on two options:

Option 1

Services to operate as they are currently, with no changes to the timetable.

Option 2

All existing and new services from the Goolwa and Victor Harbor region will travel to Noarlunga Centre Interchange to enable transfers to the Seaford train and various Adelaide Metro bus services.

 The benefits of this service would be: 

  • A new early and late service including a service arriving at 8:53am in Adelaide and departing at 5:20pm
  • Increased frequency:
    • from three return services on weekdays, two return services on Saturdays and one return service on Sundays
    • to five return services on weekdays and two return services on Saturday, Sunday and public holidays
  • The introduction of a midday inter-town loop on weekends and public holidays between Encounter Bay and Goolwa
  • Cheaper fares for the trip between Goolwa/Victor Harbor and Adelaide, with passengers able to use Metrocard fares from Noarlunga Centre Interchange to Adelaide
  • Seniors Card holders will be able to take advantage of the free interpeak travel on Adelaide Metro services
  • Passengers being able to also connect with Adelaide Metro bus services to Flinders University, Flinders Medical Centre and Marion Shopping Centre, as well as connecting to the train from Noarlunga Centre Interchange.
  • LinkSA will continue to provide concession card holders with a 50% reduction on the regular adult fare between Noarlunga Centre Interchange and the Fleurieu region.

Let us know which option you prefer. 

Feedback can be provided by emailing or calling the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure Community Engagement team at dpti.communityrelations@sa.gov.au or on 1300 794 880.

Feedback can also be provided to Ms Sharkie via email Rebekha.Sharkie.MP@aph.gov.au or by calling 8398 5566.

The community consultation will end on Thursday, 13 July 2017.

Background

Currently there are three return services to Adelaide on weekdays, two return services on Saturdays and one return service on Sunday.

Previous early and late operating services ceased in 2011 due to low patronage and the increasing costs of providing regional passenger transport services.

Following a survey conducted by the Ms Sharkie, LinkSA has proposed a new service that would connect with Seaford train services and other Adelaide Metro bus services.

Additional services would be added to the timetable to meet consumer demand for early and later public transport to Adelaide. Fares would also be cheaper under this new proposal.

Quotes attributable to Transport and Infrastructure Minister Stephen Mullighan

The State Government is eager to ensure public transport services are available when and where people need them and I encourage all users of this service to provide feedback on the proposed changes.

The community consultation will be instrumental in shaping the State Government’s final decision.

While the proposed changes will result in more frequent and cheaper services, and get passengers into Adelaide earlier, it will require LinkSA users to transfer at Noarlunga Centre Interchange.

Quotes attributable to the Federal Member for Mayo, Rebekha Sharkie MP

This is an exciting opportunity to improve public transport on the South Coast, better connecting us with the CBD, Flinders University, Flinders Medical Centre and Noarlunga Centre.

I am very pleased the State Minister for Transport has listened to our community and is actively working with me to improve public transport on the South Coast. This is a great example of State and Federal representatives working together.
