2000s interstate coach services

Postby TA3001 » Fri May 18, 2018 2:32 am

I remember bussing it from Adelaide to Sydney (and Canberra) in the mid 2000s. IIRC, these services were operated by Greyhound, but they don't seem to exist anymore, or not at least according to a webpage I looked at.

Nonetheless, I am curious in regards to exactly which route it took, and which towns it served. Would anyone here have this info at hand? It would be interesting to map the route in GE.

Direct Sydney - Adelaide Greyhound services ceased a few years ago, still possible to do but now have to go via Melbourne and I think is a codeshare to connect with a codeshare operated by Firefly.

Timetable from 2012 for former direct route https://web.archive.org/web/20120915235 ... elaide.pdf

Thanks for the link. I managed to find the Adelaide to Sydney .PDF file as well, which mentions at least some of the towns it traveled though.

IIRC, in the AP days, the service was actually operated by Briscoes? I believe their Volvo artic coach was used on this run for a while.
