Newcastle Buses operator, Keolis Downer is expected to announce changes to routes and timetables today following a public outcry.
Fairfax reports direct connections between eastern Lake Macquarie and Charlestown Square and Westfield Kotara will be introduced, while links to the major business hubs will also be created.
Direct services will also be introduced from Swansea Heads to Charlestown and the Newcastle CBD.
Keolis Downer says it will also improve bus services to The House With No Steps at Lambton - one of the region's largest disability service providers.
The timetable changes are expected to be introduced in July.
