Ventura has teamed up with Wallara Australia to provide meaningful and productive work for people with different abilities.

A not-for-profit disability support organisation based in Dandenong, Wallara’s mission is to empower members of its community to live the life they choose, which means giving them the opportunity to contribute to the Australian workforce.

Since June 2016, the Wallara team has been working in our depots helping to improve the presentation of our buses, inside and out.

“We’re proud to be able to support the Wallara community, and are de- lighted to announce that our program has been so successful, we are extending it into 2017,” says Ventura’s Managing Director, Andrew Cornwall.

“Our partnership with Wallara not only provides the opportunity for people with disabilities to contribute to the Australian workforce, but also helps our staff to better understand disabilities.”

It may look like any other bus in Victoria, but this humble bus has just passed an intergalactic milestone. Ventura Bus Line’s number 484 bus has rocketed past a mammoth vehicular milestone, travelling over two million kilometres on Victoria’s roads.

The 484 reached it’s two millionth kilometre on the 10:54am Route 788 service from Frankston to Portsea on yesterday. Over years of service, the bus has used nearly 740,000 litres of Diesel, travelled on Route 788 over 33,000 times, as well as driving the equivalent of more than five round trips to the moon.
