There are lots of people working hard to improve transport options for our communities.
Social Futures convene transport working groups throughout the Northern Rivers as a part of our Transport Development Project.
The groups bring together public, private and community transport providers, local government, members of parliament and health and social services to identify local issues and work towards reducing transport disadvantage and improve access to affordable transport options for Northern Rivers residents.
It is part of our Transport Development Project focused on reducing transport disadvantage and improving access to affordable transport options for residents of the Northern Rivers.
Our ‘going places’ website has information on all the public, private and community transport options available in the Northern Rivers to help you get where you are going without your own vehicle.
If you are looking for information about transport options in the Northern Rivers including bus routes, community and medical transport, taxi, coach and other services that operate in your area, visit goingplaces.org.au and download the transport guide for your region.
We have just updated the transport guides for the Ballina, Byron, Clarence, Kyogle, Lismore and Richmond regions to ensure they have the most up to date information about available services. There is also a guide available for Tweed provided by the Tweed Shire Council.
You can also use the link to the NSW Trip Planner to plan journeys using public transport.
This going places website is part of Social Futures Transport Development Project, a regional initiative funded by Transport for NSW, focused on reducing transport disadvantage and improving access to affordable transport options for residents of the Northern Rivers.
After completing its survey on its Bike Plan and Pedestrian Access & Mobility Plan (PAMP), Byron Shire Council is now inviting people to participate in design workshops to help further inform the development of its pedestrian and cycling infrastructure plans.
The council will be hosting four evenings across the Shire, one for each geographical area. Each evening will consist of two workshops, the first on the Bike Plan, and the second on the PAMP.
