It a vital way where seniors are connected to the community and access local amenities. They can get out and about to socialise themselves so that they do not feel loneliness.
Community local bus travel is a lifeline for many seniors and disable citizens who do not drive, but very often this isn’t an option for those who live rurally or have no local bus service available to them. For others, declining mobility may be preventing them from using public transport due to needing extra assistance.
Community transport has enormous social and economic benefits to communities all across our Blacktown LGA. Blacktown City is a vibrant, dynamic, and multicultural hub located at the heart of the Western Sydney Region. Our City is the largest Local Government Area by population in New South Wales, with approximately 9% of the total population are aged 65 and over.
Its role in combating loneliness and social isolation, helping people remain independent and access their communities can never be overstated. Our seniors personalised community transport benefits individuals or groups who can access the transport they need, regardless of their circumstances.
