THE Active Transport Group – which is encouraging people to use public transport between Cape Paterson and Wonthaggi – recently had an information table outside the Wonthaggi Library handing out bus timetables.

Nikki Nicols, Virginia Hayward-Nash and Robert Hayward were pleased with the positive response.

Some shoppers were surprised there was no weekend bus service to and from Cape Paterson and Wonthaggi.

“Our aim at the moment is to encourage people to leave their cars at home when they go shopping in Wonthaggi or when Wonthaggians want to visit Cape Paterson’s beautiful beach, clifftop walks, and The Cape eco village,” Robert said.

“We need to make use of the bus service so the Department of Transport will extend the bus to the Cape and add a weekend bus service.

“The teenagers we spoke with said a weekend bus would be great to visit the beach with friends.

“Having the weekend bus service would ease the parking at Cape Paterson.”
