Buses terminating at Newcastle railway station.

Newcastle bus routes connect suburbs in and around Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, about 100 kilometres north of Sydney.

Newcastle is the second-largest city in the state of New South Wales, serving as a regional centre for residents of the Central Coast, Hunter Valley and Great Lakes regions. Government bus services within Newcastle are operated by Newcastle Buses & Ferries, a subsidiary of the State Transit Authority of New South Wales. Newcastle Buses & Ferries also operates a ferry service across Port Hunter between Newcastle's CBD and Stockton. Hunter Valley Buses also operate a large number of routes in the area. These two main operators have an east-west split, with the blue and white Newcastle buses mostly covering the inner city and coastal region east of the lake as far south as Swansea, while the yellow Hunter Valley buses cover the region west of the lake, Newcastle Airport, and outlying suburbs and towns, extending into the valley. Port Stephens Coaches cover the Airport and coast north of Newcastle.

Rover Coaches, Port Stephens Coaches, Busways North Coast, Forster Coaches, and Sid Fogg's Coaches also run intercity routes connecting Newcastle to the rest of New South Wales.[1]

Newcastle is considered as one outer metropolitan bus region for the purposes of Ministry of Transport contracting arrangements.
