Free community bus service at Elara to help commuters get to and from Schofields Railway Station
Stockland will be launching a free community bus service at Elara to help commuters get to and from Schofields Railway Station, commencing Monday 26 November.
From feedback provided by residents through a recent survey and community workshop, Stockland have been able to develop a tailored shuttle bus service to operate for 12 months until additional public transport options become available.
The service aims to respond to the needs of the community and will be trialled during peak commuter hours; matching up with the train timetable where possible.
The bus will initially operate Monday to Friday, between 5am-9am and 4pm-8.30pm, picking up and delivering passengers to a number of bus stops within Elara approximately every 30-45 minutes. A timetable of approximate departure and arrival times, as well as bus stop locations will be made available closer to commencement.
The following conditions of carriage apply to all passengers travelling on the services:
1. Passengers are requested not to talk to the driver while the vehicle is in transit.
2. Passengers shall not consume food or drink in the vehicle.
3. Passengers shall not bring an animal on to the vehicle unless it is an approved guide or assistance animal.
4. Passengers shall not place feet on seats.
5. Passengers shall not put anything in the aisles of the vehicle that is likely to cause an obstruction or injury to someone.
6. Passengers are not to play musical instruments on the vehicle.
7. All sound equipment shall be operated at a reasonable level with earphones attached, so as not to cause a disturbance to other passengers.
