Recreation & Sport
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. The Community Bus is for anyone in the community however an assessment process will be completed prior to a resident's first trip to ensure safety.
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.
Community Bus Timetable
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.
Access & Safety
All our Community Buses are fitted with seat belts for your safety and air conditioning/heating for your comfort. We have space for walkers, trolleys, and your shopping bags (limited to two bags per passenger). A lifter is also fitted to accommodate residents using a wheelchair.
Personal Transport service
The Personal Transport service is offered by volunteers to transport residents who are unable to drive or catch public transport to and from medical appointments, social activities, shopping precincts, etc.
This service is available at a subsidised rate with a current My Aged Care Transport Referral. It is also available at a private rate for those that are not eligible for the subsidy.
The Personal Transport service is available 8.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday. We require a minimum of four working days' notice required for all bookings.
As this is a volunteer service, we cannot guarantee availability at the requested time.
Please note: This is not an emergency service. For all Emergencies please call 000
