Tweed Public and Active Transport Group

This advocacy group includes local transport providers, social services and Council staff. 

The group meet quarterly to discuss local issues, challenges and ideas to promote easier, safer and more inclusive transport.

Work includes:

  • improving connectivity between transport modes
  • education campaigns and events
  • future strategic planning
  • cross-border transport policy, plans and decision making
  • grants and funding

The group hosts information days at shopping centres to help residents find out about transport options. This also gives transport providers a chance to learn more about community needs.

Public Transport Strategy Report 2012

This report investigates different modes of public transport and their use (and potential use) in the Tweed. 

Analysis showed that due to our relatively small and spread out population, a rapid transit corridor bus system is currently the best option.
