Changes to the Community Bus Service
On 15 January 2018 the improved Community Bus Timetable will commence. The Fixed Route buses will cease and be replaced with a ‘door to door’ service to popular destinations as well as some exciting new ones.
As the new service is ‘door to door’, we now require you to register. This registration will secure you a seat on a regular basis, and you will only need to call us should you need to cancel.
You can register by phoning the Community Bus Coordinator on 8372 5131, who will mail you the new timetable and registration form. Registrations close Monday 18 December 2017, and will reopen Monday 15 January 2018.
This service is intended for residents living in the City of Unley who are transport disadvantaged, frail aged, or have a disability. Residents must be able to board the bus independently and without assistance at the destination.
Passengers must have the ability to carry their own bags. Due to storage on the bus, shopping bags are strictly limited to two per person.
The Unley Community Bus promotes an environment where passengers feel welcomed, supported, safe, and happy. The service values respect, tolerance, inclusiveness and equity. Passengers who demonstrate behaviour or use language that is not supportive of these values may be refused access to the bus.
For more information please phone the Community Bus Coordinator on 8372 5131.
The Unley Community Bus is funded by the City of Unley and driven by trained and accredited volunteers.
A Hire Service is available to community and not-for-profit organisations. For further information phone 8372 5131.

Yes, the presence of sharrow symbols does not mean you are not allowed to parallel park on that road. Please be mindful of parking restrictions and check nearby signage.
Yes, sharrows are not bike lanes and are not exclusive for cyclists to ride on. A road marked by sharrows is shared by both motorist and cyclists and the symbols help remind all users to keep an eye out for each other.
