We provide the service of a community bus for community groups in Clarence who find it difficult to access other forms of transport.

The Clarence community bus would not be able to operate without the generous support of volunteer drivers, who enable the bus to be available to community groups as often as possible.

All Volunteer Bus Drivers must:

  • Have current National Police Check (no older than 3 years) and a Working With vulnerable Persons Check if requested
  • Not have been charged with/convicted of committing an offence which would have deemed them unsuitable to work with venerable persons
  • Have current bus drivers’ licence – (light rigid or medium rigid)
  • Comply with all reasonable and lawful directions;
  • Adhere to all the relevant workplace safety laws and regulations
  • Work cooperatively with colleagues and adhere to Clarence City Councils policies and procedures
  • Comply with legislation, regulations and codes in the workplace
  • Comply with policies and procedures as amended from time to time
  • Comply with and help enforce COVID-19 Safety Plan requirements for operating the bus and transporting participants

Attend an initial Council Depot bus induction, Medical check and National police check which are to be repeated and updated each 3-year period.

Screening Checks:

  • National Police Check
  • Working with Vulnerable People Check
  • Medical Check
  • Bus Licence (Light Rigid at a minimum)

If you already have these licences, we can process your application and provide an induction to the bus as soon as practical.

If you do not have the necessary licence requirements but are still interested in volunteering as a driver, please get in touch with us about possible financial assistance to help you acquire the required licences.
