Community Bus

Keeping Seniors connected

The Better Together Community Bus helps people to connect to their community with a door-to-door service. We pick up and drop off Seniors and the frail-aged at their doorsteps.  Our bus runs help to keep them linked to the community by bringing them shopping, helping them attend to health appointments and also social activities.

Our volunteers also help passengers get on or off the bus and help transfer shopping into the bus.

The regular bus runs include:

  • Atherton to Cairns and return every Friday;
  • Mt Garnet/Battle Creek, Innot Hot Springs, Millstream, Ravenshoe to Atherton and return (fortnightly);
  • Atherton town run (fortnightly);
  • Rangeview/Tolga and return (fortnightly);
  • Social runs (monthly or on demand).


Passengers must book in advance and tickets are $17.50 per passenger.

Our door-to-door delivery service

This is a volunteer service that delivers necessities to vulnerable community members within the Tableland region who are unable, or do not have access to other services or personal networks to help in time of need

 

If you, or someone you know would like to use this service, please contact the Community Development Worker at the Better Together Neighbourhood Centre to access the service.  

 

The person using this service simply has to call their usual retailer e.g. butcher, place their order and tell the retailer the service will be picking it up. They then call the Centre to place their booking.

 

Our bus drivers have in place safe health practices including social distancing and hygiene standards to keep the community safe.
