PenBus has now started operating for the 2015 academic year. Financial assistance to run the PenBus demonstration project will expire on 30 June 2015. This project has been an outstanding success with average passenger numbers currently at 160 per day.

The Mornington Peninsula Shire is working with stakeholders to advocate for permanent funding for PenBus as it is assisting an enormous number of students, trainees, apprentices and job seekers with access to educational and employment facilities. The Mornington Peninsula Shire will continue to update residents as to the progress of PenBus funding and sustainability as news comes to hand.

Your support for this project will assist us to bring it to the attention of state government. Please feel free to lobby your state minister for the continuation of this valuable service. Thank you – The PenBus Team.
