Ride Plus, is a new flexible and personalised form of public transport, offering Manly and Eastern Suburb resident’s greater convenience, service and connectivity.

Transdev’s General Manager On Demand Transport Yvette Mihelic said: “Ride Plus is a fast, easy and direct way to simplify your commute, be it to the F1 Manly Ferry wharf or nearby Balgowlah, Manly Vale or Brookvale bus interchanges or in the city’s east to F7 Rose Bay Ferry wharf, Bondi Junction and Edgecliff bus and train interchanges. This is future of public transport here and now in Sydney’s Manly and Eastern Suburbs.”

“Ride Plus is a ‘point-to-hub On Demand Transport ride-share service – that means our six Mercedes Sprinter shuttles can pick you up direct from your door and drop you at your nearest public transport hub within the Manly and Eastern Suburbs On Demand zones.”

“Our vehicles have been customised to provide a premium service and superior customer experience. They carry up to a maximum of 11 customers at any one time and feature free WiFI and USB points.”

“There’s also no timetable – this is transport when you want it, at a time convenient to you. You can book a trip, from one month to one hour ahead of when you need it, via the Ride Plus app or website”

“Once your booking is confirmed, we’ll then provide you with a 10 minute pick up time slot and a maximum 15 minute journey time guarantee. This is all part of the service in providing you with an On Demand Transport service that you can depend on to get you where you want to go.”

Ride Plus services will operate Monday to Friday between 6am and 10pm, except public holidays.
Fares will cost a flat fee of $3.10, payable in advance by credit card online.
