Bonogin & Mudgeeraba Bus Route
Bonogin & Mudgeeraba is home to over 18,000 residents who have limited or no access to public transport making it difficult for teenagers and the elderly to access activities including shopping and sporting activities.
A bus service operating between Bonogin and Robina Town Centre (interchange) will greatly assist the community and provide people with transport options for moving around the Gold Coast.
Why is this important?
Many residents that do not drive find it difficult to socialise without relying on others to provide transport options. A bus service to the area will provide a means for residents to commute to Robina and other areas using the established bus/ train network.
Socialising with peers improves mental health, reducing stress and anxiety and provides options for families without transport a greater quality of life. A bus service to Bonogin will also provide access to sporting, shopping and recreation amenities; and assist in providing access for teenagers to gain part time/ casual employment opportunities without sole reliance on others to meet transport needs.
