At the July meeting of the Minnamurra Progress Association, the issue of the 71 Bus route from Kiama to Shellharbour Shopping Centre was raised.
One member asked why the route could not continue to Shellharbour Hospital and save visitors using public transport an extra trip by taxi at a further cost of $10 each way.
After extensive enquiries with Premier Buses and the Department of Transport in Wollongong, the Association has been told the existing timetable is arranged so that after a short wait at the terminating bus stop, a connecting bus (#51) travels to the Hospital.
The morning trips are the best for visiting hours at the Hospital.
As regular visitors to the hospital were unaware of this service the Association is keen to spread the word.
Details: The next meeting of the Minnamurra Progress Association will be at 7.30 on 6 October 2015 at the CWA hall at Charles Ave, Minnamurra.
