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 socialize

This service operates every Tuesday year-round (except public holidays). Our drivers are flexible. The driver will deliver each passenger to where the passenger needs to go to in Wonthaggi. Simply let the driver know your required drop-off point. Then the bus parks and waits in front of the “Safeway” supermarket 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.

Friendship Group bus service

On Mondays and Wednesdays, we collect you from your door step and drop you back at your doorstep so you can participate in our HACC Friendship Program (see our Community Care page for more information).
