Local community members are invited to have their say on how bus services across Dubbo can be improved to better meet community needs.
Minister for Regional Transport Sam Faraway said the consultation marked the next phase of the NSW Government’s 16 Regional Cities program to deliver better public transport outcomes across the regions.
“We want to ensure our public transport network meets the specific needs of this community, with more reliable services and better connections to the places people want to visit and at the times they want to travel,” Mr Farraway said.
“Feedback from customers will inform any improvements to the local network, delivering on our vision to help make public transport a first-choice option for people living in the regions.
“We know Dubbo is a central hub for western NSW, and we encourage feedback from community members from surrounding areas about how the bus network in Dubbo can also be improved for visitors to the city.”
Member for the Dubbo Electorate Dugald Saunders said better transport connections will support the region’s thriving industries, and boost the economy.
“This is the community’s chance to help us identify gaps and opportunities around how bus services operate, so we can deliver improvements to better meet your needs,” Mr Saunders said.
“This is a great initiative, and the improvements could include changes to existing journeys, new trip possibilities and offer better connectivity to key destinations, such as hospitals and TAFE.”
Feedback is open until 22 April 2022 and can be provided by:
