New road coach service trial for Collie and Manjimup

Friday, 2 September 2022

  • 12-month Transwa road coach trial to begin for Collie and Manjimup
  • New services to complement existing Transwa routes
  • McGowan Government initiative follows cancellation of privately-run Collie and Manjimup bus service earlier this year

The McGowan Government will introduce a 12-month road coach trial to service residents of Collie, Manjimup and surrounding areas, following the cancellation of privately-run services earlier this year.

The trial, starting 24 October, will introduce return trips between Collie and Bunbury five days a week, and between Manjimup and Bunbury (via Bridgetown) three days a week, to complement existing services in these areas.

The announcement of the 12-month trial follows the decision by South West Coach Lines to cease return services between Collie and Bunbury, and Collie and Manjimup earlier this year.

The new services will offer an early morning departure from Collie to Bunbury, returning in the late afternoon, on weekdays, and Manjimup to Bunbury (and return) on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. 

Communities in these areas were recently given the opportunity to comment on the new services through a household survey.

While the trial is planned to run for a year, passenger numbers will be reviewed regularly.

Throughout the trial period, an analysis of patronage will determine whether the services continue. The trial will also present an opportunity for the State Government to assess how bus services can be improved in Bunbury more broadly, to improve efficiency and community access.
