Public transport is a reasonably cheap and environmentally friendly way to travel, so is a popular option for many students.
Just like any other public place, there are precautions that you should take to stay safe:
- Travel with a friend if possible
- Try to avoid falling asleep and leaving your bag unattended
- Travel near the driver or guard
- Plan your trip and stick to well-used routes where possible
Bus services are the most common form of public transport available around Wollongong, but train services are also available. See the links below for more information.
