Have your say on local bus
By Peter Ruthven
THE TOODYAY Shire Council has adopted a recommendation from the Community Public Transport Committee to conduct a survey to determine community interest in the purchase and use of a new 12-seater community bus.
The current 18-seater bus (pictured right) was purchased second hand several years ago and is now awaiting sale.Read more
For the past three years council has set aside $20,000 per year for the purchase of a replacement bus.
With the expected $10,000 from the sale of the current bus, this would be sufficient to purchase a new 12-seater bus.
Fees for the use of a new bus are still to be determined.
The survey form will be distributed to all mail boxes and post office boxes in Toodyay and Morangup and the results are to be submitted to council for consideration early in 2019.
