Greyhound Australia Launches Premium Coach Service

Coach operator Greyhound Australia has launched a new premium express service between Canberra and Sydney. The new Platinum Business Class coach would provide direct, city centre-to-city centre travel and is intended to rival airlines in the lucrative travel market between both metropolises.


The coach features 50 reclining leather seats in a 2-2 configuration with a seat pitch of 31 inches. Each is equipped with individual power outlets and USB connectivity ports, while onboard Wi-Fi allows travellers to remain connected at all times during the journey. The company is also touting uninterrupted mobile phone connectivity, which remains unavailable to air travellers on the route, as a key benefit over flying.


Covering the distance between the Australian capital and its largest city in approximately 3 hours, service BC 903 departs Canberra’s Jolimont Centre at 0600 hrs to arrive at Sydney’s Central Station at 0915 hrs. It then continues to Kingsford Smith Airport’s international and domestic terminals for convenient connections onto departing flights. The return service, BC 904, leaves Sydney at 1630 hrs for a 2000 hrs arrival back in Canberra, allowing for a full day in the city.


Greyhound Australia currently has a single coach operating the return service, which doubles as a testbed for the Platinum Business Class. The company plans to expand the product for its Melbourne – Geelong, Sydney – Newcastle, Brisbane – Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast – Toowoomba routes.
