NCOSS Submission: NCOSS believes that any changes to the Mobility Parking Scheme should be made for the purpose of improving the social inclusion and participation of people with mobility disabilities.
NCOSS Submission: For people who are unable to drive, including people who are unable to afford a car, people with disability, older people and young people, the lack of transport alternatives to the private vehicle can severely limit their ability to participate in society.
NCOSS Submission: Together with the Long-Term Transport Master Plan, the Disability Action Plan represents an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of people with disability by ensuring our transport system provides a more effective enabling service, rather than presenting barriers to opportunity and independence.
NCOSS Submission: Social and community sector organisations in New South Wales regularly identify transport as a major barrier to access. While transport should be an enabling service, our current system fails to meet the needs of many potential customers, and has become a contributing factor to social exclusion. We are therefore interested in ensuring that changes to the legislation will support a system that is better able to address transport disadvantage through the delivery of more flexible services and a fully integrated system that spans all levels of transport.
