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. Bus services within Newcastle are operated by Newcastle Transport. It also operates a ferry service across the Hunter River 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 Newcastle Transport buses mostly covering the inner city and coastal region east of the lake as far south as Swansea, while Hunter Valley Buses cover the region west of the lake, Newcastle Airport, and outlying suburbs and towns, extending into the valley. Port Stephens Coaches serve the airport and coast north of Newcastle.

The network is controlled by Transport for NSW, with the Opal card ticketing system valid for most journeys. Newcastle consists of five outer metropolitan bus regions for the purposes of contracting arrangements (regions 1 to 5).

Busways, Greyhound Australia, NSW TrainLink, Port Stephens Coaches, Premier Motor Service, Rover Coaches and Sid Fogg's also run intercity routes connecting Newcastle to the rest of New South Wales.[1]
