Community Transport Services Tasmania opened their office in Mowbray on November 9.

The new office aims to meet growing demands in the Northern region.

CTST chief executive Lyndon Stevenson said that it’s all about helping people to live independently. 

“We provide transport to those who are frail and aged, as well as those living with a disability,” said Mr Stevenson.

“In Launceston today we’re launching our new headquarters, with expanded vehicles, expanded services, and additional staff.

“The demand for our services is really growing... we’re finding that in Launceston and the Northern region, people are finding transport to be a challenge,” he said.
