Council is reviewing the Community Bus program. Two small buses are provided to assist our residents with a low-cost transport option.  Is this investment providing the best possible outcomes for our communities?

Objective of the Review

A full understanding of the social benefit, financial cost and community expectations of the Community Bus program will inform a decision by Council on the future of the program.
