Community Transport & Bus Service
A community bus service
Mobility helps maintain connection, and we know how important it is for all residents of the City of Canada Bay Council area to have easy and accessible transport.
We operate our Bayrider Service on Wednesday and Thursday.
This door-to-door community shuttle bus service helps people stay active and independent in the community. It is especially helpful for people who have difficulty using private or public transport.
What our community thinks of our BayRider service
“It has improved my quality of life. I wouldn’t go out at all only for this transport”.
“It is the only way I can get to the doctor, chemist, bank, and grocery shopping.”
“No hassle booking process – promptness and adherence to scheduled bookings and friendly and welcoming staff, willing to assist clients within prescribed guidelines of the community centre”.
We operate within the City of Canada Bay
We operate within the City of Canada Bay to assist residents in accessing facilities and services in the local area.
We collect passengers directly from their homes and take them to:
- Local shops
- Visit a spouse or friend in local nursing homes
- Concord Hospital
- Banks and hairdressers etc
- Classes and courses at our centre or in the community
A donation of $5 per person is requested for a one-way trip… the return trip is free!
Donations are negotiable for those who are financially disadvantaged. Please contact us for a confidential discussion.
This is how it works
To deliver this vital service we utilise our nine-seater bus as well as volunteer cars. Our bus is driven by paid, qualified drivers who provide quality customer service. The volunteers assist using their own cars in delivering the service when scheduling becomes difficult for the bus to accommodate busy timetables.
