GoCo Bus

GoCo runs a daily transport service around the local Gunnedah area to help older people and people who do not have access to their own transport to get where they need to go and back again.

The GoCo Bus will help you hop, skip and jump around town in Gunnedah, transporting you to and from your own home.

A team of dedicated GoCo volunteers drive the vehicles to collect community members who need to go shopping, attend community events, medical appointments or visit friends and family.

The service operates on weekdays, during business hours.

Who is eligible for the GoCo Bus?

GoCo bus passengers can be aged from children through to the elderly. Passengers must be registered with GoCo and/or be eligible through My Aged Care.

How do I book a seat? 

All trips on the GoCo Bus are booked in advance with our Transport team which means we can be flexible with times and destinations to suit your needs and preferences. Call 02 6740 2240 during business hours to book your seat and schedule your destination, 24-48 hours notice is preferred. You will receive a reminder phone call the afternoon prior to your booked trip.
