A new innovation for supporting people travelling to and from Tamworth, will see a state-of-the-art facility built for people with disabilities, the elderly and others who need to access transport services in the city.

The Disability Transport Hub is the first of its kind for a regional centre and will provide a place for passengers to rest, be cared for by their carers or even take a shower before entering the next leg of their journey.

The initiative has been made possible through negotiations between Tamworth Regional Council’s Transport and Assets Division, the Disability Transport Hub Working Group including Oxley Community Transport’s manager Sharon Tibbs, vice-chair Ray Tait and Fiona Hemmings from Fiona’s Mini Buses and Transport for NSW, who has provided $210,000 towards the project.

The facility will be built in the heart of the CBD’s Bicentennial Park and is expected to start before the end of the year.

CTO would like to congratulate all involved with this great project and look forward to the finalisation of construction.
