The Kulin Shire Council exists to sustain, improve and develop the Kulin region through the provision and facilitation of infrastructure, services and opportunities in a manner which will instill community pride while giving a vibrant, socially and economically sustainable environment for businesses and families.

Community Bus

Council have a 22 seater Community Bus, proudly sponsored by Bendigo Bank and Kulin Bush Races that is available for hire to residents. Council does not object to the hire of the community bus to people from outside the Shire of Kulin, however, if the bus is hired by somebody who is not a resident of Kulin and the bus is subsequently required by a local, the non-local will be advised that the bus is no longer available to them. At least one week’s notice must be given to the non-local of the cancellation of the hire to enable them to make other arrangements.

The rate for hire of the community bus for 2019/20 is $1.10 per kilometre including fuel. Any fuel purchased throughout your trip will be reimbursed if receipts are provided.

The Community bus trailer is hired at $58.50 per day.

As per requirement, a $50 deposit will be collected on receipt of the bus key.

If the bus is returned in an untidy or unsatisfactory state and it is not possible to contact the hirer responsible prior to the next hire of the bus, the bus will be cleaned and the hirer will lose their deposit to cover the cost of cleaning.

Smoking is NOT permitted on the community bus. 

Failure to comply with any of the above conditions may result in refusal to hire the bus to that organisation in the future.
