Our Community Bus service is provided by a dedicated team of volunteers that can assist you on and off the bus and transport you to local shops, community centres and libraries.
Enjoy the ease of being picked up from your home with other residents in your community, giving you the opportunity to socialise and form friendships.
Our Community Buses can transport you occasionally, or on a regular basis, to your local shopping precinct. The bus allows you time to do your shopping and run your errands at the bank, post office or library. Our buses also travel to Westfield Marion and local Community Centres to support you to attend social groups and activities.
Access & Safety
All our Community Buses are fitted with seatbelts for your safety and air conditioning and heating for your comfort. We have access for walkers, trolleys and your shopping bags (limited 2 bags per passenger). A lifter is also fitted to accommodate residents using a wheelchair.
When our buses are not in use, they are available for hire to local non-profit community groups. Hire is subject to bus and Council accredited volunteer driver availability. If you are interested in hiring a bus, please visit our website and complete the Community Bus Hire Application.
Our Personal Transport service is designed for eligible residents who are unable to drive and cannot access the Community Bus safely. Our trusted team of volunteers can transport you to medical or social appointments, assist you with shopping and provide social companionship. For more information on eligibility visit the Community Wellbeing page.
