Village Transport

Getting around the village of Hotham and to Dinner Plain is easy with our Village Transport.

Village Bus

As part of your resort entry fee, Mt Hotham Resort Management Board provides a free Village bus service to help you move easily from pillow to powder, bar to bar or home after a long day on the slopes. To catch a ride is simple - just wait at a bus stop sign located around the village precinct (refer to below map). 

The bus service operates from 6.45am to 1.45am* seven days a week.

* Bus service may finish earlier in the shoulder season.

Hail a Bus

New for 2018, the Mt Hotham Village bus service will be provided by Alpine Spirit Coaches, incorporating a modern, spacious, wheelchair-accessible bus fleet. 

As part of this service, we are excited to introduce Hail-a-Bus. The service will allow you to hail a bus from your phone and one will be dispatched to the bus stop you are at as soon as possible. Additionally, the service offers GPS tracking so you always know where the next bus is - no need to wait in the cold! 

Simply register online with Alpine Spirit Coaches as a Hotham Village Shuttle Bus user.
