Area Connect is intended to facilitate your access to employment, training, medical and personal care, and improve your connection to your community. It does not duplicate any existing services; rather it expands the effectiveness of existing services by connecting with them.
Its main purpose is to get people to where they need to go – either by connecting them to an existing public transport service, or taking them to their destination where no public transport exists.
While it can also connect with funded community transport, and with mainstream public transport, it is different and separate from either of these, created to fill a different need.
This service has been created and developed by CTST in consultation with the Tasmanian community.
