There's one every weekday leaving Kinglake round 7am and returning around 3.50pm from Greensborough. In fact, it's also marked on the free shuttle bus timetable.

Trial bus route to begin in Kinglake
Monday, 29 August 2011
From the Minister for Public Transport
A new bus route will begin in Kinglake as a six-month trial, Minister for Public Transport Terry Mulder announced today.
Member for Seymour, Cindy McLeish, welcomed the bus service trial.
"This new bus service is great news for the local community. In particular, I'm sure students, the elderly, and those without access to a car will appreciate this public transport boost," Ms McLeish said.
Mr Mulder said that the new bus route will be known as Route 565 and will run between Kinglake and Whittlesea, six days a week.
"I am very pleased that we have been able to work with the local community to come up with a solution that will help to address their transport needs," Mr Mulder said.
"The new Route 565, to be operated by Dyson's Bus Services, will begin on Monday, 12 September and will operate as a six month trial to help to assess the community's support of the service.
"The shuttle bus that previously operated between Kinglake and Whittlesea had very low passenger numbers. I encourage residents to jump on board when this route starts to ensure it remains viable," Mr Mulder said.
Route 565 will provide two morning and two afternoon trips on weekdays, and one trip in each direction on Saturdays.
Passengers will need to purchase a Zone 2 myki or Metcard to travel. Metcards are available from the bus driver.
Ms McLeish said passengers wanting to travel south beyond Whittlesea would be able to catch this new bus to connect with Route 562 buses to Greensborough. This means Kinglake residents can use public transport to access, RMIT and Tram Route 86 at Bundoora, as well as Hurstbridge line trains, SmartBus Route 901 at South Morang and other local bus services.
"Thanks go to residents who provided their local knowledge to help inform the timetabling of this trial route, which will help to ensure the bus route meets local needs," Ms McLeish said.
Route maps and timetable information will be available from Metlink on 131 638 or at http://www.metlinkmelbourne.com.au
