The Farm Bus - Byron’s newest transport loop

A NEW bus service has been launched covering the Byron Shire in a loop that takes in Bangalow, Newrybar and Suffolk Park.

For only $15 a day, The Farm Bus is marketed as a comfortable and cost effective transport for both locals and visitors.

On a one day hop-off, hop-on bus ticket, customers of the new service by Byron Bay Airbus have the option of 11 stop-off points around the loop.

“Visit The Farm and see for yourself how a farm operates and explore the unique collection of businesses that share the amazing location,” the website says.

“Explore some of Byron Bay’s most awarded restaurants, Byron Beach Cafe, Three Blue Ducks and Harvest Cafe.

“Experience the best of Byron’s amazing beaches or stroll through historic Bangalow exploring some of the area’s best homeware shops and cafes.

“Newrybar is the newest regional hinterland hot spot with Harvest Cafe, Driftlab and the newly opened Newrybar Merchant, home to well known local designers.”

Buses depart about every hour and every two hours from Newrybar.

For an extra $10 per day The Farm Bus offers a Night Owl service for users who want to experience the region’s nightlife.

Pick up times can be either 8pm-8.45pm or 10pm-10.45pm.

Let The Farm Bus know what time you want to be picked up, from where you want to be taken and their drivers will coordinate within 30 minutes of your preferred pick up time.
