McCafferty's Timetable List

Compiled by Steven Haby

Last updated: 26 August 2003

This document lists all timetables issued by McCafferty's for all services including national express, Queensland regional services and services operated since the acquisition of Greyhound Pioneer. McCafferty's issued timetables for specific services, e.g. their Toowoomba - Brisbane "Metro-Link" coordinated service with Queensland Rail in addition to their booklets.

For a period in the 1980s McCafferty's services were given names, e.g. Daylight Pacific which was the daylight service between Sydney and Brisbane via the Pacific Highway.

Like any list of this nature, it is considered to be a work in progress and additions can be send by email to sghaby@hotmail.com  .
