The Tatura Community Plan committee will host a ‘‘transport forum’’ this week, looking to improve transport services in the town.
‘‘We want to start the conversation and discuss the issue of transport to and from Tatura,’’ committee chairman Carl Walters said.
‘‘Our aim is to come up with some solutions to solving the problems we have.’’
Mr Walters said the last thing the forum was trying to do was jeopardise what current services did exist, but rather fill the gaps that had not been attended to.
‘‘We have the bus service and taxis, but we’re keen to expand our other alternatives,’’ he said.
‘‘Catering for pensioners who have weekly appointments in Shepparton and to improve youth employment opportunities is something we’d like to target.’’
The forum will be held this Thursday, February 16, from 7pm at the Senior Citizens Centre.
