Member for Myall Lakes, Stephen Bromhead has asked for the TrainLink coach service, currently on trial between Taree and Coffs Harbour, to be extended to include a stop in Forster.
He encourage those living in and around Forster and Tuncurry to visit the information booth on Friday, December 9 at Coles, between 9am and 1.30pm to “have their say.”
A community information booth will be available in Taree on Thursday, December 6 between 10am and noon, and 3.30pm-5.30pm,
“We want the community to get behind these services and that’s why we are asking them for feedback on how and when these services are operated,” Mr Bromhead said.
“If you want to have your say or just find out more about the trial, get down to one of our information booths and have chat to the NSW TrainLink staff.”
She said a six month trial service, operated by NSW TrainLink, would leave Taree at 7am and arrive in Coffs Harbour at 10.55am.
“Stops along the Mid North Coast will include Port Macquarie, Kempsey, Frederickton, Macksville, Nambucca Heads and Urunga.
“The return service would then depart Coffs Harbour at 4pm to arrive in Taree at 7.55pm.
“The service we are proposing will benefit customers who would like to use public transport - be it for work, business, medical appointments, shopping or to visit family and friends in a modern, accessible coach,” Mrs Pavey said.
“We want to provide this service and we would like community advice on how and when these services are best operated."
The community can provide feedback until January 4 via an online survey at: transportnsw.info/taree-coffsharbour
