The guide has been prepared by the Lower Hunter Councils Transport Group, with seed funding from the Lower Hunter Councils, the Transport NSW (Local and Community Transport Branch) and the Federal Government Department of the Environment and Water Resources (Australian Greenhouse Office).

The Guide has been prepared with the co-operation and support of the Transport NSW, State Transit (Newcastle Bus and Ferry Services), RailCorp (City Rail), private bus and coach companies in the Region, Newcastle Taxis and Newcastle Airport Corporation.
