The Snowy Mountains Bus Service is back for 2024 to help get you to your favourite snow resorts safer and even easier than ever before.

Tickets are now on sale for the popular Snowy Mountains bus service, which is being expanded this year to include a Cooma via Berridale to Jindabyne service.

The bus service connects Jindabyne to the resorts of Thredbo, Perisher and Charlotte Pass and for 2024 will also include a morning Cooma via Berridale to Jindabyne service with afternoon return. The service runs 7 days a week from 8 June to 6 October, with extra services available during school holidays.

The service, which continues to grow in popularity and carried out more than 80,000 passenger journeys completed in 2023, will this year run from 8 June to 6 October. Extra services will also be available during school holidays.

“The Snowy Mountains Bus allows a stress-free journey to the snow fields for snow goers. The service allows motorists, who might not be experienced in driving in alpine conditions, an alternative to ensure their families make it safely to the snow fields” says Minister for Regional Transport and Roads, Jenny Aitchison.

Seasonal passes are available and passengers are encouraged to book ahead to secure their seat. Tickets can be purchased on the day where available.

New SMS Alerts For Road Closures

Also new for 2024, Transport for NSW has introduced a subscription-based SMS service that will send alerts when Kosciuszko Road or Alpine Way need to close due to parking at the ski fields reaching capacity. Customers who subscribe to the service will receive three text messages to alert them of road closures, before, during and after the closures are in place.

“This year we are excited expand the reach of this popular service and add a new initiative that will deliver important real-time messaging directly to customers when they need it most” says Minister for Skills. TAFE and Tertiary Education and Member for Monaro Steve Whan.

“Locals and regular snow visitors will know the frustration of arriving at the Kosciusko Road and Alpine Way intersection, only to be turned around. This new SMS alert system will now allow them to make more informed travel decisions before departure.”
