Bundanoon customers will have easier access to hundreds of NSW Government services and more than 70 cost of living savings, with the third one-stop shop Service NSW bus visiting the community today.
Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said the new bus delivers on a promise and will have a dedicated southern NSW route, with 25 towns – including Bundanoon – to be visited around every eight weeks.
“Having Service NSW available on wheels will provide added convenience and hip pocket relief to families, many of whom are devastated by drought,” Mrs Tuckerman said.
“This bus will take Service NSW to the people, saving them not only time, but also money. It will perform the same transactions available at most centres, such as getting a birth certificate, Seniors Card, and renewing vehicle registration, as well as Driver Knowledge Tests and on the spot cost of living appointments.
“The two existing buses have covered almost 40,000 kilometres and completed around 2,500 transactions, saving customers in regional and remote areas a combined 150 hours in travel time. About 300 customers have collectively saved $132,000, with an average saving of $540.”
The bus will roll through towns with advanced notice, so locals will know when to expect a visit and what documentation is required to perform their transaction. They will also be called out in times of emergency such as natural disasters.
The bus will be at Railway Avenue, Bundanoon, from 10.00am to 3.00pm and will return on 21 January 2020.
