When travelling on any Murrays service you must wear a face mask and remain in your allocated seat once boarded. Do not change to another seat. Seat allocation is in place to keep everyone onboard as safe and as distanced as possible. 


Note that to travel on any service you must PRE-BOOK, this means we will not accept walk-ups or cash bookings on the Wollongong or South Coast services.  

Do not travel if you are unwell. 


Keeping You Safe Onboard

At Murrays we take safety seriously.  Over the past months we have worked hard on the implementation of safety measures to limit the risk of Covid-19 to our passengers, drivers and staff. We are continuing to assess the situation as it evolves.

Travel must be pre-booked, we can no longer accept cash for walk up bookings.

You must remain in your allocated seat at all times.
