Join Our Volunteer Team

Community Transport: Wollongong-Shellharbour provides transport options to keep people moving in the community. We provide services such as transport to medical appointments on our dedicated Health Buses or in a private car driven by our team of wonderful volunteers. We also transport people to daily activities such as shopping and visiting to keep them connected in their community. Our 22 -22 seater Bus Fleet transports community groups all over the Illawarra on daily excursions and to social community groups.

Currently we are looking for drivers that hold an LR licence or above to drive our community buses and C class licence holders to drive on our heath bus service
