GROVE SHUTTLE BUS TRIAL 2022
The Grove launches on-demand shuttle bus on 16 May. Whether it’s getting to the station or dropping the kids off at school, getting around is about to become a lot easier with the relaunch of The Grove’s on-demand FREE shuttle bus service. Funded by Frasers Property and operated by Wynbus and The Routing Company, the shuttle service will allow residents of The Grove to easily connect with the Tarneit train station, schools, shopping centres and other local amenity.
The 6 week pilot was scheduled to begin in June 2021 but was reschedule due to covid. The aim of this service is to assess demand for public transport services and test the latest on-demand routing technology – this will be a fully automated door-to-door service with no set routes or timetables.
