Great reasons to use our community bus

  • Getting to a V/Line bus stop can be difficult in our area
  • You might live out of the way and have limited means of transport
  • Getting to a doctor’s appointments can be difficult if you do not drive
  • You still need to be able to get into town to buy food and groceries
  • You might just like to get out of the house for the day to socialise

This service operates every Tuesday and Friday year-round (except public holidays). Our drivers are flexible. They take passengers where they need to go in Wonthaggi, just let the driver know your drop-off point. The bus parks out the front of Safeway in Billison Street, Wonthaggi. Time in Wonthaggi: 3 hours (10:30am-1:30pm)

Book your seat or enquire today by calling 5678 2277.

Shoppers have plenty of time to:

  • buy their groceries
  • attend appointments
  • have a coffee with a friend
  • shop about the town

The BVCG community bus arrives in Wonthaggi at 10.30am and departs Wonthaggi at 1:30pm. For convenience, the bus remains parked in front of Safeway on Billison Street at the supermarket entrance during these times.

This community service is brought to you by the Bass Valley Community Centre, 2-4 Bass School Road, Bass.
