Kenilworth Community Transport Service

The Kenilworth Community Transport Service is an affordable, reliable and accessible community transport service trial for Kenilworth residents.

Kenilworth Community Transport Service

The Kenilworth Community Transport Service (KCTS) provides services to residents of the following localities of the Sunshine Coast Region: Belli Park, Cambroon, Conondale (part), Coolabine, Eerwah Vale, Gheerulla, Kenilworth, Kidaman Creek and Obi Obi. See a map (PDF, 1021KB) showing these localities.

The community-run service offers pre-booked return services to Nambour, Mapleton, Maleny, Eumundi and Yandina, during daylight hours, Monday to Friday. Trips to Sunshine Coast University Hospital can also be arranged on request.

All drivers are volunteers. The service endeavours to have drivers available Monday to Thursday every week. The service is normally able to provide drivers on Fridays and weekends if required. It is important to note that all trips are dependent on drivers being available. If you are interested in becoming a driver, please contact the committee at [email protected].

Supported by the transport levy, the KCTS provides affordable, reliable and accessible community transport options to residents of the Kenilworth region who have limited transport options.
