GRANTS AVAILABLE TO IMPROVE TRANSPORT EXPERIENCE IN THE REGION

Tuesday, 5 July 2016

NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall has today invited local councils, transport operators and community groups in the region to apply for a share of around $3.3 million in grants to improve the customer experience on public transport.

Mr Marshall said funding was available through the State Government’s Country Passenger Transport Infrastructure Grant Scheme (CPTIGS), which has funded 138 projects since March 2011 worth more than $6 million.

“The government is committed to improving public transport infrastructure for customers and I encourage local councils, operators, schools and community groups to work together to identify the needs within the community, then apply to support their local public transport services,” he said.

The CPTIGS supports projects that directly benefit customers in rural, regional and remote communities travelling on services contracted by Transport for NSW.

“Our local community has the opportunity to benefit from funding that can provide infrastructure such as new bus shelters, improvements to existing shelters, signage or better lighting and security,” Mr Marshall said.

Applicants will welcome the simplified application process which is completed on-line at www.transportnsw.smartygrants.com.au/CPTIGS2015-17. Guidelines and further information are available from: www.transport.nsw.gov.au/content/country-passenger-transport-infrastructure-grants-scheme-cptigs

Applications close at midnight on Friday, 30 September 2016.
