Getting Around The Northern Inland Is Now A Lot Easier

Tuesday 4th of October 2011

People wanting information about transport services in the Northern Inland region will now find it much easier within the release of a 91 page guide called the Northern Inland Transport Guide 2011.


Regional Development Australia Northern Inland (RDANI) is pleased to announce the launch of the guide that will provide a comprehensive overview of all public transport options across our region.


RDANI Chair, Mal Peters, is delighted that the guide is available. “This guide will open up our region to those who need it most. People in towns such as Ashford and other small localities will now know exactly how to get to our bigger centres and beyond easily and affordably. It’s a great initiative for the region,” Mr Peters said.


The Northern Inland Transport Guide 2011 was jointly funded by RDANI, Department of Transport, Trade and Investment NSW, the NSW Department of Family and Community Services, Ageing, Disability and Home Care and Local Councils in the Northern Inland region.


The Northern Inland Transport Guide will outline not only the local bus services, but national bus services, rail services, air services, taxis, community transport and transport for health. The guide also contains information on fares and tickets, detailed public transport network maps and how to get to universities, TAFE, colleges and hospitals.


“It will be great to see the public making better use of our transport facilities as a result of this guide and hopefully it will ease the tyranny of distance felt by many Northern Inland residents,” Mr Peters said.


Over 20,000 copies of the guide will be distributed throughout the region. It will be available in hard copy at council offices as well as electronically on all council websites and the RDANI website. For further information, please contact RDANI on 67712790.
