Wundowie to Northam Community Transport Trial

Wundowie to Northam (via Bakers Hill & Clackline) & Return

The Shire of Northam is operating a community transport trial from Wundowie to Northam, via Bakers Hill and Clackline on Tuesday's and Thursday's. The trial is being supported by the Department of Communities and will run until 1 August 2019, with the possibility of an extension beyond the trial phase.

This service is designed for people in Wundowie, Bakers Hill and Clackline who do not have access to their own transport and who require services provided in Northam that are not available in these communities. The Shire of Northam encourages residents to support local business and service providers in their own community where ever possible. 

There is a cost of $2 for a return journey. This is payable to the driver on the day.

Booking are essential as seats on the bus are limited.

Priority will be given to seniors and people with essential appointments in Northam. 

As of the 2nd May the service will run on Thursday's only.

Please note unfortunately the community bus is not equipped with wheelchair access. Passengers who require assistance when in Northam must travel with a carer or support person.

All bookings are to be received by 12pm (midday) the day before travel. Priority will be given to seniors and passengers with an appointment for essential services in Northam. 

If no bookings have been received by 12pm the day before the bus service will not operate on that day.
