The popular ‘Gong Shuttle’ has been locked in as a fare-free service for another three years after new funding agreements were signed this month between Transport for NSW and its funding partners, Wollongong City Council and the University of Wollongong.

The service, which will continue to June 2027, connects commuters to key destinations including Wollongong Station, the private and public hospitals, Wollongong CBD, the University of Wollongong and the harbour and beaches.

In 2023, the Gong Shuttle carried more than 2.2 million passengers, operating daily across nine buses.

The new funding agreements, which started 1 July 2024 and will be in place until 30 June 2027, maintain the funding contributions from Transport for NSW, the University and the Council.
