Community Buses for Hire

If your community group would like to organise transport to your next event, why not enquire about Murrindindi Shire Council’s Community Bus?  

Important Information

  • Council has two buses available for hire located in Alexandra and Yea, for the community to enable access to essential community services and participate in activities and programs.       
  • The buses are available for those who face geographic, physical, social or economic disadvantage, Murrindindi Shire residents, community groups and not-for-profit organisations (ranging from sports clubs, church groups, seniors groups and community based health services).
  • The buses are not available for private hire so as not to disadvantage local transport businesses. Individual bookings will be considered when supporting people with disabilities to access health services that require a wheelchair hoist.
  • The buses come equipped with a wheelchair hoist, auto transmission and can transport 10 passengers, including the driver.
  • The driver must hold a current drivers licence and provide evidence of this prior to collection of the bus.
  • Buses will be supplied in a clean, roadworthy condition with a full tank of fuel and need to be returned the same way.
  • If you are completing an online form, please allow a minimum seven days for confirmation.
