Affordable and accessible transport services are essential for social and economic participation in society and for maintaining health and wellbeing. Unfortunately, not all people currently have the same level of access to transport because of barriers including costs, limited availability of public and community transport infrastructure, and a lack of flexibility and responsiveness by available services.
People who are most impacted by lack of transport access include the elderly, people with disability, those on low incomes, and communities in regional and remote areas. QCOSS recommends increased investment in public transport and fare discounting for low income groups.
