    Has anyone used these on demand bus service OurBus - On Demand public transport servicing Epping, North Rocks & Carlingford. ?

    Its kind of uber wherin you prebook your ride and pickup point and then it drops you off anywhere in the loop?
    Asking coz if I work in city and have to catch a bus from M2-Oaks Rd interchange, parking is a big pain and based on the feedback from locals council started this initiative from Feb 18.Price per ride is bit steep -$5

    I spoke to a few locals and also REs and none of them got a clue.Does anyone know about this service?Thanks

    We have it in the Shire
    Only because I've seen the shuttle getting around with all the signwriting !
    (Can't imagine they'd be too happy with me dragging a mower along)

    The boot of the commodore is quite large and can easily accommodate a mower. Anyway, cutting the neighbour's grass is just a matter of walking over there. And it's basically a one man job, no help required.

    I've heard of it for the Macquarie Park area.
    Me personally... if it's a short trip... I ride a bicycle or unicycle.
    Handy, fun, zero cost, no need to wait....

    Suppose you take that $5 bus each way and a normal train or bus into the city. I think you'd be looking at around $19-$20 for daily public transport. I assume the on demand bus doesn't take the Opal card. Huge $$

    Wow. I live in the northwest and have never heard of this. I think what you would be paying for is convenience, may be worth it?
