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.


Starting on Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014, the Bodhi Bus will run a day service to Barunga, Beswick and Bulman and return. Like all Bodhi Bus services, it will leave Katherine at 8am (7:30am checkin) and be in Barunga at approximately 9am, Beswick at approximately 9:45am and Bulman at at approximately 12:45pm. The return is scheduled for 1:00pm (12:30pm checkin) and will return through Beswick at approximately 4pm, Barunga at approximately 4:45pm and should arrive in Katherine at approximately 6pm. Passengers are asked to be ready at pickup points at least 15 minutes in advance and all times may vary slightly according to road and weather conditions beyond our control.

Commencing on September 1st, the Bodhi Bus is moving to a new pricing model. Every seat on a Bodhi Bus will incur the same fare, whether it is occupied by an adult or a child. Those passengers under the age of 3 will still be considered infants and will be treated as they are now. Moving to this new pricing model will allow us to offer a CHEAPER fare on most runs. Please see the Route Services page in coming days for links to the new pricing levels. For any further questions regarding the change, please email the office or call (08) 8971 0774.
