Locals Shuttle Bus
Friday night dinners at del Rios are quickly becoming the highlight of the week for many of our diners. We would like to extend the invitation to our local community to come and experience the atmosphere without having to worry about transportation. We've partnered with local bus companies who will be shuttling guests from Geelong and Lara to our estate and back.
In order for us to pick you up from as near to your home as possible, we have multiple stops throughout Geelong and Lara. The total cost of a bus ticket is $15. Ticket purchases after 9am on the day of the booking must be done via the phone (1300 171 259).
