The All-Electric Bongo Transit

Sad to say that the Bongo Transit service is NO LONGER OPERATING!
Due to unforeseen circumstances we can no longer enjoy this fun little tuk tuk service here in Melbourne.
Maybe it will return one day - we can only hope.

Eco Friendly European Tricar SHUTTLE AND TOURING SERVICE

The Bongo Transit Eco Friendly European Tricar operates as a LAND SHUTTLE SERVICE transporting passenger from the ferry terminals at Sorrento and Queenscliff.

This 3 wheeled sustainable vehicle has the capacity to carry up to 6 passengers and connects to both of these Victorian, historic town centres.

The recent addition of the land shuttle service through the CBD district of Melbourne, creates another exciting aspect for locals and tourists alike.

This little transport vehicle is actually a zero-emission, all electric shuttle bringing a little bit of a European style to Victoria and fun way to explore attractions on either side of Port Phillip Bay as well as the major city centre of Melbourne, Australia.

The little 3 wheeled car has been registered as a bus and is professionally operated as a get-on, get-off service

This unique mode of transport adds to the fun of a journey across Port Phillip Bay and the environmentally-friendly transport aspect certainly ticks a lot of boxes for a community based service.

One has to ask the question when traveling as a foot passenger on the searoad ferry, how do you get around and explore the regions once you get off?
