Visitors can hop on and off at the designated stops along the way, or stay on until the end and return back to the stop they boarded from.  It currently operates from a single 55 seater bus and can accommodate standard wheelchair access. The bus cannot accommodate motorised / scooter style or the Parks Victoria all-terrain wheelchairs due to access limitations.  Bicycles cannot be taken on the bus.

Note that the service does not regularly stop at the park entrance. The Shuttle Bus connects with the Portsea public bus (788) stop at the front entrance gate at three designated times – see timetable below.

This service is operated by Ventura Buslines under permit arrangement with Parks Victoria. Tickets are available for purchase from the driver at the designated stops. Most credit cards and cash accepted. Tickets are valid for the day of purchase only.  One-way tickets are not available.
