Connect to Ballarat
Connect to Ballarat aims to work with the community to make better use
of existing transport resources. The project helps to make services more
accessible by complementing existing transport options rather than
competing with local transport services. The City of Ballarat is a member
of the steering committee.
Connect to Ballarat is funded through the Victorian Government's
Transport Connections program, a cross government initiative to help
transport disadvantaged communities work together to improve access to
The Connect to Ballarat objectives are to:
• make better use of existing transport resources to fit the needs of the
• develop creative local transport solutions;
• work together with transport providers to provide a mix of options;
• develop networks to make it easier for the community to participate in
decision making; and
• assist disadvantaged individuals, groups or communities who do not
have access to appropriate public/private transport options.
Transport Connections Project Officer with Uniting Care Bob Reid said
young people and seniors are likely to be transport disadvantaged.
"Sometimes the services may exist but people might not know about
them or how to access them."
