Public transport push

TWEED deputy mayor Barry Longland is hoping more people will start to use public transport in places like Murwillumbah, where buses have traditionally been scarce.

Cr Longland has launched a website aimed at turning around the low use of public transport by making details of routes, timetables and options more available.

Tweed Shire Council teamed up with the Northern Rivers Social Development Council to announce the local Transport Information Pages and Going Places website at a bus stop in front of Sunnyside Shopping Centre, Murwillumbah.

Transport development worker Linda Lomman said if every New South Wales vehicle owner drove an average one kilometre less each day, they would save a combined 130 million litres of fuel every year.

The Transport Information Pages can be found at the front of the North Coast Yellow Pages.
