Sutherland Shire Shuttle Services

Free Shire Shuttle - Saturday Nights Only

  • The 'One Life One Chance' Shire Shuttle free bus service gets people closer to home safety from various venues around the Shire.
  • It operates between 11:30pm-3:30am Saturdays.
  • Is safe with security on board.
  • Will drop off patrons anywhere on the route upon request.

Suspension of Service - Last Service Saturday 25 August 2018

Due to extremely low patronage for several months and the withdrawal of funding from a number of licensed premises, the Shire Shuttle service will be suspended from Saturday 25 August 2018 until further notice.

For a number of years the Shire Shuttle provided a popular service which was financially supported by local licensed venues and supported by Council and the Police.  However, the subsequent introduction of secure taxi ranks, on-demand services such as Uber and Taxify, courtesy cabs and buses provided by individual licensed premises, has resulted in safer and more convenient alternatives for patrons to move about the Shire on weekend evenings.  Coupled with new venues being established in non-traditional areas and the new licensing laws, including mandatory lock-outs and responsible service of alcohol initiatives, the demand for the Shire Shuttle service has almost ceased entirely.

We would like to thank the many patrons who utilised this service over the years and trust patrons are now enjoying the newer improved services listed above.  Council, the Police and local licensed premises will continue to review and monitor the situation to ensure that transport in and around the ‘night life’ of the Sutherland Shire remains safe, convenient and a pleasant experience for all patrons.
