PLEASE NOTE CHANGES TO BUS SCHEDULE 

AS OF 1st FEBRUARY 2019 - WE WILL BE ABLE TO OFFER A PASSENGER SERVICE ON  
FRIDAYS ONLY

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
We find it necessary to make these changes due to the continued poor condition of the dirt road sections between
Chillagoe & Almaden & the on-going damages caused to the bus.
Constant repairs & increasing costs means that this service is no longer financially viable.
However, we do not want to leave the several communities that we service completely without public transport - so will retain
the Friday run.
Freight services will remain available on Monday & Wednesday. However, these will be completed in a private vehicle.
As this vehicle does not have government accreditation, we cannot - under any circumstances - offer
any carrying of passengers.
Should these changes cause you particular hardship - then please contact Mareeba Shire Council
& add your complaint to the many we have submitted.


For information on services you can contact reception on 40 947 155.
For bus timetable, please see below.



FARES ARE PAID DIRECT TO BUS DRIVER. PLEASE TRY TO HAVE CORRECT FARE AS ONLY LIMITED CASH IS CARRIED.

WE HAVE A STRICT NO FARE - NO TRAVEL POLICY. PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR CREDIT AS REFUSAL MAY OFFEND.

WE DO NOT OFFER A DOOR TO DOOR PICK UP OR DROP OFF SERVICE. PASSENGERS MUST BOARD & DISEMBARK AT DESIGNATED BUS STOPS ONLY.

DRUNK / DISORDERLY OR ABUSIVE PERSONS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED & WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO BOARD BUS.
