About Us

The Bodhi Bus was established in March 2009 to offer remote communities a reliable and professional bus passenger service which aims to improve access to regional centres across the Top End for remote area residents.

Many of our clients use our services to access medical care, retail businesses and a wide range of government departments and services.

Our fleet currently consists of two Mercedes 39 seater Axor Trucks, one Mercedes 31 seater Axor 4WD Truck, one Troop Carrier, a Brahman 28 seat AWD mini-coach and three 34 seater MAN Coaches which are fully air conditioned and customized to suit travel in remote areas. With our own in-workshop mechanic, our fleet is maintained to the highest standard to ensure their reliability in the rough dirt road conditions.


As of April 21st, the Ngukurr one-day, wet season route service will cease and we will recommence our two day, dry season service out to Numbulwar and return to Katherine on the second day. Travel from Katherine to Ngukurr and Numbulwar will be available on Mondays and Thursdays and inbound trips from Numbulwar and Ngukurr will be available on Tuesdays and Fridays. For any bookings or changes in existing bookings, please contact the office on (08) 8971 0774

All Bodhi Bus route services will be operating as normal over the Easter period. The town office will be shut from March 25th (Good Friday) through to March March 28th (Easter Monday). All bookings over this period must be made over the phone (08) 8971 0774 which will be available from 8am to 11am each of the four days.

The Central Arnhem Road is shut after Barunga as the Waterhouse River is flooded and impassable. The Gapuwiyak service for March 16th and 17th is cancelled. If you wish to travel on the next available service, this weekend, please ring and re-book with the office (08) 8971 0774.
