ECCO has proudly provided the Eumundi community with one of its high priorities identified in 2009, a community bus. The community bus was acquired using funds raised and also funds the ongoing coordination and maintenance of the bus and its use.
The community bus provides a weekly outing for residents to Noosa Civic and Cooroy IGA on alternate Thursday mornings, Other high priority uses for the buses are for community events and charities, support for youth and elderly and for ferrying passengers parking on the perimeters of Eumundi on busy market days. Passengers are ticketed for booked one way rides. Private hire for outings is sometimes possible.

$5 One Way within a 10km radius of Eumundi
$10 Return within a 10km radius of Eumundi
