Community bus services are available to anyone registered under the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) living in the Adelaide Hills Council area. Eligible clients can access weekly shopping trips and be a guest on our Mystery trips, taking the group to new locations for a great social outing.
There are 7 local shopping trips offered each week with one extended trip for Suburban shopping on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month. The buses provide a complimentary community service however clients are invited to make a gold coin donation each time they use the bus.
Our amazing team of bus volunteers drive the bus (drivers) and assist passengers (helpers) to load shopping bags and ensure passengers arrive safely back to their homes. They also provide much entertainment and laughter on the longer Mystery trips!
A range of new outings is being developed for 2017, click here to view the timetable.
If you are not currently receiving home support services by The Hut or the Adelaide Hills Council and would like to access our bus service you will need to:
- Register through the My Aged Care website
- Request for services to be provided by The Adelaide Hills Council
- Council will contact you to discuss your service needs and then provide a referral to The Hut
- Contact us on 8339 4400 to book your bus outing
Use of the bus for community groups
When not being used for our services, the buses are available to be used by other community groups based in the Adelaide Hills Council. All we ask is for the bus to be re-fueled prior to its return.
Buses are provided by the Adelaide Hills Council through their Commonwealth Home Support Program to help residents remain independent in their own homes for longer.
