It is challenging enough when you need to get around to medical appointments let alone if you don’t have access to transport.
Home Assistance and Regional Transport Services, HART Services, has now opened a new Head office and Drivers lounge. The facility will also be used by volunteers from three other community transport organisations as a central point to wait for clients in a relaxed setting.
HART Service covers more than 8,000 square kilometres across the Northern Rivers serving thousands of clients. It assists people who have no means of transport to medical and health related appointments, shopping, and social outings.
HART Services CEO Isaac Smith said ‘that represents an enormous amount of goodwill and community participation, it is exciting to be able to connect in Lismore again’.
The new head office and drivers lounge is inside the old Trevan Ford building on Conway Street.
‘We are excited to have our fleet of buses and vehicles back in the heart of Lismore, along with 100 volunteers and staff now coming back into the CBD,’ said Isaac.
