Bus Stop at Yarrunga Community Centre

Feb 11, 2022 | Advocacy, Electorate, News, Parliament

My question is for the Minister for Public Transport. Last week I met with the lovely, hardworking team of Yarrunga Community Centre. Yarrunga Community Centre offers a number of health and wellbeing programs, social groups and adult learning services. From what I could see they manage to get a lot done with very little. Prior to COVID the centre had an average of 1200 visitors a week. Unfortunately, despite being such a critical destination for the community and having so many visitors, there is no bus stop outside the centre. The nearest bus stop is some distance away, which makes it difficult for seniors and those with disabilities as well as those who feel a little unsafe walking this distance in the dark. So the information I seek is: has the government considered extending the local bus route to include the Yarrunga Community Centre?
