Taxi Bus Service
This service provides transportation for community groups, schools, age care facilities, disability services and other organisations who require regular services or shared services to and from one or multiple locations to/from a particular destination.
All vehicles on these services are wheelchair accessible, and the drivers are trained to transport wheelchair-bound customers and people with disability.
Taxi Bus services offer group travel to common destinations providing a cost-effective alternative means of travel to work, school, sporting events, or community activities, family and other social outings.
Taxi bus services may be booked as one-off trips or regular scheduled services.
Fare reductions are available for:
- Pre-booked, multiple passenger and group bookings,
- Regular scheduled routes,
- Corporate customers.
Where several people wish to travel to a common destination, sharing a vehicle provides a cost-effective alternative means of transport.
Local Transit links customers travelling in the same direction or to the same geographical location by partnering with vehicle pooling technologies. This type of service provides passengers who are willing to share the ride with considerable fare savings.
We specialise in transfers for groups of 5 to 54 passengers, such as:
- Travellers to and from Melbourne International Airport and other smaller airports in Melbourne
- Airline crew transfer to and from their hotels
- City hotel transfers
- Families and groups of friends for social outings, sporting and cultural events
- Groups of colleagues to and from conference venues
Our professional and friendly Melbourne drivers will look after your family or group from the moment they enter the vehicle to the time they disembark and wave goodbye, ensuring that your group enjoys a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable transfer experience.
Local Transit offers disability inclusive tours for groups to all destinations in the Melbourne metropolitan area and all popular destinations in regional Victoria.
Vehicles include wheelchair accessible vehicles in 10 to 25-seater buses, and non-accessible buses with 54 seats. A guide will accompany the driver for tours and excursions as required.
Our professional and friendly team will look after your family or group of friends or colleagues from the moment they board the vehicle, throughout the tour, and right up until all happy passengers disembark at the end of the tour.
