Changes to the Gong Shuttle Bus route

The 55C Free Gong Shuttle route will change from Monday 1 February 2021 to allow for a separated cycleway to be created along Smith Street for the Pop-Up Cycling Routes project.

Changes include:

  1. The 55C will no longer travel west on Smith Street. Instead it will continue south along Harbour Street then west along Market Street. It will then turn south onto Corrimal Street and continue its usual route.
  2. The bus stop for the 55C and the 65 bus services currently on the east side of Corrimal Street, between Smith Street and Market Street, will be moved about 120 metres south on Corrimal Street, between Market Street and 115 Corrimal Street.
  3. Some on-road parking will be shifted to make room for the new bus stop location and ensure no overall loss of parking:
    1. 4-5 car spaces will be removed from Corrimal Street between Market and Crown streets
    2. 4-5 car spaces will be installed on Corrimal Street between Smith and Market streets.

Please see the map below for an overview of these changes:
