This program facilitates the safe travel of community members by training individuals, selected by their community, so that they are able to drive buses to sporting events, funerals, or other gatherings. It will allow 10 Aboriginal people in the Lismore area to get a light rigid (LR) or medium rigid (MR) license, and about 20 learners to get their P-plates. Getting about additionally aims to reduce the number of people facing minor misdemeanor charges as well as increase employment opportunities.
A user-friendly driving manual that can be accessed via smart phones will also be developed as part of the project.
Getting about is coordinated by Lismore City Council and ACE Community Colleges, and funded by Transport for New South Wales. It will run over 12 months.
