Victoria to South Australia coach services set to resume

Coach services between Victoria and South Australia will resume their normal timetables from Friday March 27 after the South Australian Government updated its border restrictions to provide exemptions for coach drivers.

From Friday, the coach services between Warrnambool/Ballarat and Mount Gambier along with services between Albury and Adelaide and services between Adelaide and Bendigo will resume travelling to and from South Australia.

The South Australian Government has introduced restrictions which require all non-essential travellers to self-isolate for 14 days once they cross the border into South Australia, effective from 4pm Tuesday 24 March.

Passengers travelling on these coach services are not exempt from these measures and will need to follow all directives once they arrive in South Australia.

There are currently no restrictions on passengers from South Australia crossing the Victorian border, however all non-essential travel is to be avoided.

Passengers will be able to reserve seats on coaches to and from Adelaide at staffed stations, ticket agents and by calling 1800 800 007 from midday Wednesday 25 March and on the V/Line website from 3am Thursday 26 March. Non-cash payments are preferred.

Passengers travelling to and from Mount Gambier will be able to buy tickets on the coach, at staffed stations, ticket agents, the V/Line website and by calling 1800 800 007 from Friday 27 March.

As essential services, freight is still able to cross the border into South Australia following the border closure, and we're continuing to work with all stakeholders to keep goods moving across the state.

The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services has recommended against all non-essential travel. For more information, visit dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus
