All you need to know about Murrays

Keeping You Safe & Connected

We have always been committed to keeping you safe and connected, now more so than ever. So, we thought you might like to hear about the extra steps we are taking to make sure you feel safe and well when you travel with us.

Already we are deeply cleaning and sanitising our coaches after every trip, other Travel Safe measures include:

Onboard the Coach

To improve comfort and safety onboard we have made a number of modifications to our vehicles. These include:

  • The air conditioning in every coach is set to recycle fresh air every few minutes in the coach cabin. Vents are positioned to direct airflow from ceiling to floor
  • We have enhanced our deep cleaning and are using industrial grade cleaning agents as well as increased wipe down of high touch areas onboard
  • Automatic hand sanitiser dispensers in every coach
  • Sneeze shields to optimise the exclusion zone between passengers and driver
  • Installation of signage reminding everyone of their responsibility to keep each other safe

Temperature Checking, Masks & Hygiene

For the comfort of everyone traveling, all passengers will have their temperature tested prior to boarding.

As of 6am Thursday 15 April wearing a mask onboard moves from being ‘mandatory’ to ‘encouraged’ in QLD.

In NSW, from 12:01am Monday 29th March wearing a mask onboard moved from being 'mandatory', to 'strongly recommended'. We kindly ask our passengers travelling in NSW & ACT to continue to bring and wear a mask for the comfort of other passengers.

We encourage all passengers to take appropriate precautions to protect themselves and others on the coach. Please remember to frequently wash your hands thoroughly with soap or sanitiser, cough/sneeze in to a tissue or your elbow, and make sure you stay home if you are sick.

Seating Allocation

Long distance bus travel such as inter-regional bus services or charter buses (which includes buses hired for group travel and tour buses) are not currently restricted under the COVID-19 Public Health Orders in NSW, ACT or QLD.

While we are continuing to accommodate family and household groups so that they can sit together, we cannot guarantee you will not be seated next to another passenger.

We will continue to monitor guidance from Government and are committed to doing the best we can every day to keep our team and our customers safe. Please stay in touch, we would love to hear your ideas and answer any questions. Please call or email us at and we will respond as soon as we can.

Thank you for your ongoing support, we have missed you and can’t wait to welcome you back.
