ACRC, with the support of Transport NSW, provides low cost transport in the Blue Mountains. As the Blue Mountains is spread over 100 kilometres, with 27 villages and towns scattered along the Great Western Highway, distance and isolation can severely limit access to services, especially when they lack personal transport.
ACRC’s Community Transport program aims to help the local Aboriginal population access essential services, reduce social isolation and improve the quality of life for our local Aboriginal population.
