Lack of community transport options



Veteran Community Needs Affected:

Good Mental Health, Good Physical Health, Adequate Transportation

Issue Details

Insufficient cost-effective transport for veterans in a very spread-out community in Townsville. Public transport is poor. Causes isolation as veterans at home lack the opportunity to get to connections activities with mates.

Likely Cause of the Issue

Limited number of transport providers and those that are available are very expensive.

Possible Solution

Provide an allowance to a responsible organisation that can determine the need and pay the cost differential to what might be paid in a capital city.

Who is likely to be responsible to fix this?

DVA, Qld Govt
