Public transport scores 65/100
Woy Woy's public transport gained a 65 out of 100 rating in an NRMA's survey that saw 23,400 people across NSW rate their area.
While a total of 1357 people responded from the Central Coast local government area, the figures broke down as follows:
31 people voted about the Woy Woy area specifically and rated the peninsula 65/100;
606 voted for the Wyong area and gave public transport a rating of 52/100;
751 voted for the combined Gosford/Woy Woy area and gave a rating of 65/100.
The respondents either answered on-line or using a smart phone and were asked to rate public transport in their suburb out of 100.
Manly on the Northern Beaches of Sydney received the highest rating in the State with 77/100.
Newcastle was in the bottom five, with 47/100 and the worst suburb overall was the Hawkesbury with 35/100.
NRMA spokesman Mr Peter Khoury said suburbs with the greatest choice received the highest ratings and areas with irregular and unreliable public transport performed less favourably.
He said the most effective way to address congestion was to invest in improving both roads and public transport networks.
