On Demand public transport

Keolis Downer Northern Beaches On Demand service, Keoride, makes going to places without a car convenient, safe and reliable.

Just book your ride and we’ll drive you where you need to go for the cost of a public transport fare. The service complements the B-Line’s ‘turn-up-and-go’ frequency.

Keoride’s service on the Northern Beaches will pick you up from a designated point of interest within the service area, or the nearest bus stop and take you directly to the closest transport hub at Avalon, Narrabeen, Warriewood, Newport, Elanora Heights or Mona Vale.
