Baw Baw’s new bus services are go!
Baw Baw News By William PJ Kulich // 21:34, Sunday 14 May 2017
New routes, new stops, new timetables – catching the bus to work is now possible for many people in Baw Baw.
Today marked the first day for Warragul and Drouin’s new and revised town bus services, as well as other improvements network-wide.
The changes are big. Until last week, Warragul only had services at around midday and Drouin didn’t have a town service at all. As of today, you could theoretically catch a bus to and from work… but maybe not a strictly 9-5 job.
New town services in Warragul and Drouin start between 6am and 7am on weekdays and run hourly, but the last services from the town centres leave before 5pm.
You can find details of each route on the Public Transport Victoria website by clicking here. You can also check out the PTV-supplied Warragul and Drouin route maps below.
If you were already a Baw Baw bus user, PTV has provided a handy table to help you find your new or renumbered route. Bear in mind there might be a new stop closer to you than there was before.
All routes use myki for fares, except route 89 which will continue to use paper tickets.
Elsewhere on the network new bus stop signs have been installed, and Warragul Bus Lines has employed additional drivers to operate the routes.
