Transport Development Project

Transport Development Project

Transport is one of the many challenges faced by communities in regional and remote areas around Australia. Having access to a good transport system can lead to significant economic, social and environmental benefits. Social Futures’s Transport Development Project is a regional initiative funded by Transport for NSW, that is focused on reducing transport disadvantage and improving access to affordable transport options for residents of the Northern Rivers. The Transport Development Project Officer works with local transport providers, interest groups and Local Government to develop regionally appropriate solutions.
