School bus changes

From Monday 2 September, school bus services provided by K&D Sims & Sons Pty Ltd (Sims) will be operated by Mersey Bus & Coach (Merseylink).

There will be minor changes to some bus routes, bus stops and timetables.

This includes:

  • The merger of the route between Kindred and Ulverstone with the existing Merseylink bus travelling between Devonport and Ulverstone (via Forth). As no students have travelled on the section between Kindred and Forth this should have no impact on families.
  • The service between Nietta and Ulverstone will commence at Sprent in the mornings. Students travelling between Nietta and Sprent will use the Merseylink bus between South Nietta and Devonport and then interchange onto the Sprent bus in the mornings. The afternoon service direct to Nietta will not change.
