Illawarra bus routes connect suburbs in the
Illawarraregion of New South Wales. Services are largely integrated with the public transport network of Sydney, to the north.
The narrow coastal strip on which the Illawarra's suburbs are built makes the main South Coast railway line the key part of the region's public transport. A limited bus network was operated for a time by the
Government of New South Walesbus company, the Urban Transit Authority. Today, bus services are operated by Premier Illawarra, Dion's Bus Service, Greens Northern Coaches and Kiama Coachlines.
The Illawarra is considered as one outer metropolitan bus region for the purposes of Ministry of Transport contracting arrangements.
Comprehensive public transport information is provided by Illawarra TransInfo, run by the region's local governments, and the state government's
Bus-only lanes are very rarely seen or used in Wollongong and the Illawarra.
Premier Illawarra is a merged entity combining major local bus companies with an interstate coach operator. Ruttys Bus Service, John J Hill Bus Service and Nowra Coaches became Premier Illawarra in June 2001.
