2 June 2017 – Media Release
The recently upgraded Access Loop bus service now connects Cumberland’s residents to more locations, services and programs across the local area. The free service gives priority to seniors, people with a disability and their carers to help them access their local community.
The improved service comes after a review in December of 2016 which included talks with a number of passengers to identify improvements to the service including frequency and pick up locations. As a result, a number of pick up locations have been added to the loop including:
- Regents Park Library and Community Centre
- Granville Pool and Community Centre
- Lidcombe Station
- Seniors Units at Platform Street
- Auburn Centre for Community
- Super Centre at Lidcombe
- Salvation Army Food Bank
“Being able to get around Cumberland is very important for those residents who don’t have the capacity to do so. But the mode of transport also has to be simple and easy”, said Cumberland Council General Manager Malcolm Ryan.
“That is why over the last 3 months we spoke to those using our community bus service to see how we can make it more seamless and available to as many people as possible.
“Cumberland’s Access Loop bus service now goes to more places, more often. The bus visits local shopping centres, train stations, community centres, libraries and more”.
An accessible vehicle, priority wheelchair space can be booked by phoning 9632 2765.
