Saturday Community Shuttle Bus
******** Currently not running due to Covid restrictions .********
Volunteer drivers wanted
We are seeking dedicated volunteers to drive our community bus on a Saturday.
The community bus helps Nillumbik residents access their local community where public transport is limited.
The 11 seater bus follows a timetabled route from Hurstbridge to the St Andrews Market.
The bus travels from 9am-5pm and is linked to the Hurstbridge train schedule.
Shifts are 4 hours (either morning or afternoon) and drivers must be willing to commit to a shift
every 4-6 weeks.
Volunteers are required to undergo a Working with Children Check, Police Check, Medical and Driver History check, which will be covered by SACC for successful candidates.

The 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. The Saturday bus run is now managed by the St Andrews Community Centre.
Gold coin donations are asked 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 pick up a printed copy from the bus driver, the general stores at St Andrews, Smiths Gully and Panton Hill, or by calling 9710 1223
The bus does not run on days of Total Fire Ban

St Andrews Community Market is now sponsoring the Saturday Bus service. The sponsorship agreement will support the Saturday Bus service by covering the cost of bus promotions, fuel, as well as volunteer police, working with children and medical checks as well as provide promotional opportunities for the St Andrews Community Market.
