|Welcome to the Hepburn Shire Council's webpage on the Transport Connections Project |
The Transport Connections Program aims to provide better opportunities for participation in community life for people with limited access to transport.
The $22.8m investment (2010 – 2014) supports communities to find ways to use existing transport more effectively as well as developing new ways to increase access to education, employment, health and social opportunities.
Individual projects are coordinated through local partnerships to increase opportunities for communities to participate in decision making and priority setting. These partnerships also ensure the initiatives developed are appropriate for the local community. Innovative approaches include active transport, virtual access to services and shared use of private transport.
The Victorian Government funds 34 Transport Connections projects across Victoria involving rural, regional and interface council areas.
The Transport Connections Project in Hepburn Shire is called 'Front SEEAT' commenced in January 2008.
The project covers all of Hepburn and Moorabool Shires and is aimed at reducing transport disadvantage across the two municipalities in a way that increases social connectedness.
