LiveBetter’s fortnightly public transport service to continue in Far West New South Wales
LiveBetter’s fortnightly public transport service between Collarenebri and Narrabri has been made permanent, providing the Burren Junction and Wee Waa towns with more options and solving transport barriers across the far west region of the state.
Customers living in these communities can access reliable public transport close to home, getting them to appointments and commitments in a convenient and safe way. With services running once a fortnight, the stress and anxiety of needing to get to appointments or shopping excursions is lifted – the question “But who is going to take me?” is now obsolete!
Customers can also experience safety and security every time they travel, with the driver always being the same person; a trusted local who is committed to getting you from Point A to Point B safely.
The LiveBetter Collarenebri to Narrabri service now includes two additional stops in Burren Junction and Wee Waa. This will allow people in these communities to easily access health and social services, shops, educational facilities, and popular destinations with multiple drop off points when they arrive in Narrabri.
LiveBetter CEO Natalie Forsyth-Stock has welcomed the announcement. “These are services that provide essential connections for our rural and regional communities.
“Many people living regionally experience transport disadvantage which means they don’t have access to a car, a license or public transport. This is a big issue in rural communities who are usually isolated in the first place so we are thrilled to partner with the NSW State Government in filling this gap.
“Often, extended families will use our service to attend a funeral. Sometimes it will be a young person who is trying to socialise with friends and other times we are helping people attend specialist appointments. There’s a whole range of reasons people need the service,” Natalie explained.
