FUSION BUS (STREET WORK BUS)
The Fusion Bus (Street Work Bus) is an innovative new project that involved the conversion of a full sized bus into a mobile youth cafe. The bus has been fitted-out in partnership with the Buderim Lions Club and had a shed erected to house the bus thanks to the Buderim Foundation. It will be used at a variety of locations around the Sunshine Coast where youth are hanging out and looking for things to do. It has already operated at the Sunshine Plaza, Kawana Shopping World, Alex Headland Skate park and Sippy Downs Skate Park. It’s now operating back at Kawana Shopping World. Along with this the MyBus in partnership with SeaFM.
