For quite a while now, residents of Zilzie have been “barking mad” for a new school bus service route. This area has experienced a bit of a housing boom with new homes being constructed and families moving in. Young’s has been listening to its customers and has lobbyed the necessary Government agencies to put forward a case for this new school bus service.
On Friday 12 February , Member for Keppel Brittany Lauga MP contacted our office with some exciting news. In April, there will be a 3 month trial for the new school bus service for Keppel Cove. The service is being delivered in partnership between the State Government and Livingstone Shire. Young’s Bus Service will operate this service.
If you’re interested in this 3 month trial, please visit the School Transport Assistance Scheme page on our website and complete the Bus Travel Assistance Application. This application must be completed and emailed
The Department of Transport and Main Roads is in the process of finalising the timetable information.
This isn’t the only good news. Our Operations Manager Phil Young has also been speaking to the Department for some route improvements around Statue Bay (Yeppoon).
