Noosa's popular FREE Holiday Bus service will be operating again during the forthcoming holiday season, this time using decorated Sunbuses festooned with reindeers, surfers and beach-going Santas.
The service will start on December 26th, Boxing Day, and run through to Sunday, January 7th, offering residents and visitors free bus travel and thus easing traffic congestion on the coastal strip.
Travel on existing Sunbus routes 626, 627, 628 and 629 will be free during this period as will trips on temporary routes 061 and 062, shuttling passengers between Park 'n ride sites (in the Cooyar Street carpark and the AFL Ground in Weyba Road) and the Noosa Parade Bus Station.
An additional free service will run on two routes : between Noosa Heads and Cooran (route 063) and Noosa Heads and Peregian Beach (route 064).
Hinterland residents and visitors will be able to access the Tewantin-Boreen Point taxi service (normally $2 a trip) for FREE during this period also.
