Baylink Shuttle temporary changes
COVID-19 update 30 March 2020
The Baylink Shuttle team has been closely monitoring Government announcements about the evolving nature of the COVID-19 virus.
The additional restrictions on business and social interaction have seen a drastic reduction in the number of people using the service, with patronage down by up to 80% on normal travel patterns.
We recognise the important role the Baylink Shuttle plays in connecting the Wentworth Point and Rhodes communities. However, as the Government is now encouraging people to avoid non-essential travel, we are temporarily reducing the current frequency of the service.
From Wednesday 1 April 2020 the Baylink Shuttle will operate Monday to Friday as follows.
Regular Service between Wentworth Point and Rhodes
6:30am – 7pm – Reduced to 1 bus (approx. every 25 minutes)
Express Service between Marina Square Shopping Centre and Rhodes
Morning Service 6:35am – 9:15am bus (approx. every 10 minutes)
Afternoon Service 3:00pm – 7:00pm bus (approx. every 10 minutes)
To ensure our actions are consistent with official health and transport advice we have also implemented additional cleaning measures and we ask that customers that need to travel on the Baylink Shuttle take extra care. You can do this by planning ahead, travelling outside peak hour where possible and maintaining physical distance from other passengers.
When travelling you should also
Practise good hygiene after coming in contact with handles, rails, buttons and windows. Clean your hands with soap and water or hand sanitiser.
Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze.
If you feel unwell, please stay home and avoid travel altogether.
The Billbergia Group remains committed to the Baylink Shuttle and to providing the services that make our communities such a great place to live.
Take care and stay safe.
