226/349 Broadmeadow to Charlstown (STA)
Incorrect. From November 2008;

226 = Newcastle to Glendale via Broadmeadow, Waratah, Jesmond & Elemore Vale.
349 = Newcastle to Swansea North via Marks Pt hasn't gone via Broadmeadow since Nov 2008.

And Newcastle's 352 is longer than both the 349 & 350. The Swansea / Morisset bus routes wouldn't come near being the longest bus routes in Australia.

Something that has been on Newcastle Buses website since Nov. 2008.

Firstly, I may have mis-worded my earlier response. It should have said:
226 Broadmeadow to Newcastle, and
349 Newcastle to Swansea.

This information was gained from web sites, therefore it seems the sites are/were wrong.

Further, my whole response was in the context of combining regular route services into one long trip - NOT THAT ANY INDIVIDUAL ROUTE WAS LONG!

Sheesh!

Why do you keep saying Broadmeadow? The routes are as my previous post. 226: See Newcastle Buses map for 226: [url]http://www.newcastlebuses.info/routes/N226_20101128_map.pdf[/ur

Only one of the timetabled 226's terminate at Broadmeadow. I believe their are still some short workings that may not be shown in the timetable.

"Quote Newcastle Buses" Why do you keep saying Broadmeadow? The routes are as my previous post. 226: See Newcastle Buses map for 226:

Well, derrr, he says that because he has stated Broadmeadow to Newcastle 226 transferring to the 349 in town. Before having a hissy fit read what the poster has to say!

He would also be better off just catching the 350 ex the 9 ways at Broadmeadow and dependent upon the time of day going all the way to Swansea shops. There are a few 99's which start their journey at Swansea.

You could come up from Geeveston, surely that counts as a bus and not a coach? It has a very bus-like timetable, reasonably frequent and no rest stops for drivers, unlike everything in the south except for the Richmond one. It would give you an extra 20km. Or Dover I guess. The once a month Colebrook service is only 5km shorter than Geeveston...

Nobody has cited either km or duration.
Do any of these beat Melbourne's longest in the 900s series?
