SPECIAL VENUE – DRIVER BUS LINES DEPOT, MT WAVERLEY
Unfortunately, we are unable to access Hawthorn Tram Museum as the Museum Committee has not yet met to approve the use of rooms for meetings.
In good news however, we have arranged for the use of Driver’s depot in Mt Waverley as an alternative and we thank Gary Driver for this.
The depot is at 45-53 Ricketts Road Mt Waverley. There is ample parking in Ricketts Road.
Attendees are asked to assemble in the car park outside the entrance to the office at about 2.50pm.
The meeting will close at about 5pm with tea and coffee afterwards, with a chance for people to catch up and share industry gossip.
For those using public transport, Route 693 leaves from Oakleigh Station at 2.23pm and stops at Gilby Road in Ferntree Gully Road at 2:35pm The depot is a 5 minute walk to the other end of Gilby Road.
Route 703 leaves from Syndal Station at 2:35pm and travels along Blackburn Road to Ricketts Road arriving about 2:40pm. This is also with a five minute walk to the depot, waking west along Ricketts Road.
