Unfortunately, due to Covid government restrictions the shopping buses have been cancelled until the Covid situation has improved.
We wish you and your families all the best in these difficult times.
We are available by phone and email if you need any assistance or advice.
ANLC operates a Dial-a-Shopping-Bus service for older local residents. Twice a week we take our community bus, and shoppers, to local shopping centres.
On Mondays, the bus alternates between the Forest Hills and Waverley Gardens shopping centres. On Fridays, the bus visits Ashburton or Chadstone Shopping Centre, allowing around three hours shopping time.
Local shoppers can book a pick up and drop off at home, or meet the bus at the Centre.
If you or a family member live locally, and are aged 65 or over, why not leave the car at home and book a seat on the bus on Mondays and Fridays. Travel in safety and style on the ANLC Dial-A-Shopping-Bus.
Cost: $3.00 per shopper per trip
Monday shopping: Forest Hill or Waverley Gardens shopping centres
