In the following video you can see just before the Kingsford light rail stop you can see broken white lines where buses are able to change from the light rail/ bus lane to the normal traffic lane
Also would Cars have to give way to the bus, I don’t really know the NSW laws but notice they have then give way to bus but the sign has a right arrow and the bus would be turning into the left lane
Road Rules 2014 NSW
77 Giving way to buses
(1) A driver driving on a length of road in a built-up area, in the left lane or left line of traffic, or in a bicycle lane on the far left side of the road, must give way to a bus in front of the driver if—
(a) the bus has stopped, or is moving slowly, at the far left side of the road, on a shoulder of the road, or in a bus-stop bay, and
(b) the bus displays a give way to buses sign and the right direction indicator lights of the bus are operating, and
(c) the bus is about to enter or proceed in the lane or line of traffic in which the driver is driving.
87 Giving way when moving from a side of a road or a median strip parking area
(1) A driver entering a marked lane, or a line of traffic, from the far left or right side of a road must give way to any vehicle travelling in the lane or line of traffic.
Line of traffic and marked lane are defined in the Dictionary.
For subrule (1), give way means—
(a) if the driver is stopped—remain stationary until it is safe to proceed, or
(b) in any other case—slow down and, if necessary, stop to avoid a collision,
(2) However, the driver of a public bus does not have to give way to a vehicle if—
(a) the driver of the vehicle is required to give way to the bus under rule 77, and
(b) it is safe for the bus to enter the lane or line of traffic in which the vehicle is driving.
Public bus is defined in the Dictionary.
The bus must display a give way to buses sign and the right direction indicator lights of the bus must be operating—see rule 77.
