The Kenilworth Community Transport Service (KCTS) trial provides services to Kenilworth residents living within 6.5 km radius of the Kenilworth Post Office.

The community-run service offers pre-booked return services to Nambour, Maleny, Eumundi and Yandina, during daylight hours, Monday to Friday.
