Koori bus licence scheme set to allow more people to get about safely

Date posted: 12 July 2012

A new project in Lismore, New South Wales, will allow 10 local Aboriginal people to get a licence to drive a bus, and about 20 learners to get their P-plates. Coordinated by Lismore City Council and ACE Community Colleges, and funded by Transport for New South Wales, Getting about, will run over the next 12 months.

ACE Outreach Program Manager, Jan Levy, said having Aboriginal bus drivers providing transport will allow people to travel more safely.

‘If you have a bus licence, you're there for your whole community,' she said.

Information days will be held on Cabbage Tree Island and in Lismore, Ballina, Box Ridge, Muli Muli, Casino and Kyogle.
