Do they still have travel restrictions under the new contracts?

At this stage there doesn’t seem to be and travel restrictions on these routes.

Over the 6 months, Transport for NSW will collect the relevant passenger data and either modify or terminate the routes.

At the end of the 6 month trial, It will be up to TfNSW which operator runs the routes.
