Summer is just around the corner which means that it’s time to get the family together, pack your sandals and surfboards and head to the coast. To help you get to the beach and shops this summer, we have teamed up once again with our good friends at the Town of Cambridge to bring you the TOC Summer Bus.
The Town of Cambridge Summer Shuttle Bus is designed for the whole community! Whether you are heading to Floreat Library for some much deserved R&R or hitting the skate park with the kids, there is a stop for everyone!
What You Need To Know
When will the Bus Run?
The TOC Bus service will run from 9 am to 4 pm, seven days a week (except Christmas Day) from 14 December 2018 to 26 January 2019 and best of all its free!
What’s the Bus Route?
You can find a map of the bus route on the image below. Alternatively, we have made a custom Google Map too which you can use at any time to help you find the closest bus stop to you.
The bus will navigate its way through the Town stopping off at various locations and any Transperth bus stops.
Key destinations and stops include:
- Cambridge Street ( almost opposite No. 86 Youth Centre on the southern side of the street)

How Do I Track The Bus?

How Often Does The Service Run?
You can download the timetable here.
Some Important notes about the timetable:
- As this is a hail and ride service, times are approximate and may differ slightly depending on how many people board the bus.
- There are 5 minutes stopping times at Floreat Beach each loop of the service to ensure it starts at the beginning on the hour (and can collect all the returning beachgoers).
- The 12 pm service will stop at Floreat Beach for 30 minutes and commence again at 1.07pm (just so our driver can have a quick break).
Is it free?
Absolutely! You can take your friends and family on board for free.
What Do I Need To Look Out For?
The bus to look out for will be a Horizon’s West vehicle wrapped with the Town of Cambridge branding. You won’t be able to miss its bright colours. Our bus drivers will do their best to spot you along the journey. Just make sure you hail the bus so they know to stop 🙂
Ohh, and finally, if you take the TOC Summer Bus to be sure to enter the Selfie competition.
Hop on the TOC Summer Bus and take a fun selfie.
Share your selfie on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter using the hashtags #TOCSummerBus and #TownofCambridge.
Prizes will be determined closer to the date!
We are really excited to bring this initiative back to the community for the second year. We hope you take advantage of the service. See you at the beach!
