Celebrate Dion's 90th Anniversary


On Sunday 1 December 2013, Dions Bus Service will celebrate 90 years of service to the Illawarra and, in particular, Wollongong's northern suburbs.

Dion's Bus Service has been servicing the Illawarra since 1923. Starting out with a Ford Model T Bus, this family owned business has endured World Wars, and the Great Depression.

During these trying periods, the Dion Family would best be remembered for not letting people walk if they did not have their bus fare.
