The free Saturday Community Bus runs thanks to a dedicated group of St Andrews parents who initiated the service with support from Nillumbik Shire Council and the generous volunteers who drive the bus.
Gold coin donations are encouraged from all passengers to help cover the cost of fuel.
The bus travels from Hurstbridge station to Panton Hill, Smiths Gully, St Andrews, Cottles Bridge and back to Hurstbridge train station. It is a great way to visit the market, or venues such as the Panton Hill Hotel for lunch, without having to worry about parking.
You can download the Saturday Bus Spring-Summer timetable (0.22MB) or pick up a printed copy from the bus driver, the general stores at St Andrews, Smiths Gully and Panton Hill, or by calling 9433 3723 or emailing email@example.com.
The bus does not run on days of Total Fire Ban
