370 Bus from Leichhardt to Coogee

I rely on the 370 to help me carry shopping from Leichhardt Market Place to Annandale, to attend the Newtheatre in Newtown and get home afterwards and most recently to get home from Bankstown to Annandale. Many a time, I have caught the 370 home from Glebe Point Road after checking stocks of Annandale Short Walk books at Gleebooks I even once went on a Joy Ride on the Light Rail to Randwick but decided to return on the 370 as the Tram was so slow. Another time we went to a wedding at Coogee - sadly there were no buses to get us home! The pottery studio at UNSW and a lecture have also been a reason to catch the 370. It connects the Newtown Performing Arts School to NIDA.  A weekend 370 bus service from Annandale to Coogee Beach was introduced in the 1940s. Buses ran every 20 minutes via Newtown and St Peter's Station to Beach Street, Coogee. The full fare was 8d (shillings) and child fare was capped at 3d.- 1940 'NEW BUS SERVICE.', The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 19
