A trial coach service between Goulburn and Sydney will become a regular service from July.
The decision to make it a regular service was taken after became a hit with the residents since the launch of service in September 2018.
"Goulburn residents have thrown their support behind the trial and now they can enjoy a regular timetabled service giving the community more flexibility and choice when it comes to transport options to the city," Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole said.
"The NSW Government is committed to improving connectivity for regional communities."
Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman welcomed the security of regular service on behalf of the community.
"The introduction of the trial gave locals another way to travel to and from Sydney. Whether it is to work, visit friends or family, attend medical appointments or enjoy a weekend away - the service is indispensable," Mrs Tuckerman said.
"I am delighted that the Sydney intercity service is now a regular fixture, and I encourage everyone to try the service."
Meanwhile, Goulburn to Canberra service trial period has been extended for another three months, after which it will be reviewed.
Goulburn resident Lawrie Sullivan, who has been an advocate for the Goulburn to Canberra bus service, would like the service to continue.

"There are people who travel to work for Canberra and there are those who visit for a hospital appointment," Mr Sullivan said.
"They would like the services to continue and not scrap one to start another."
