Tweed residents will find it easier to plan journeys in the Tweed and throughout the Northern Rivers with the launch of a new one-stop-shop website.
GoingPlaces.org.au includes information and contact details for buses, taxis, community transport, trains, cycleways, airports, fares and concessions and specialist aboriginal and youth services.
Tweed Shire Council’s Alex Lewers says: “The new Going Places website has been developed to make it much easy to find information you need about transport options in your area,” Social Futures Development and Innovation Project Officer Alex Lewers said.
“Going Places also features regular updates on transport news around the region, including road closures, events and community engagement on transport issues.”
The site also links to Transport for NSW’s new Trip Planner online service, which enables users to enter their starting point and planned destination and will list options for their journey. It provides estimated travel times and specific service numbers for public transport, with links to booking services.
“It makes planning a journey easier and quicker than ever, whether it’s travelling within a town or a trip across the state,” Mr Lewers said.
