Toowoomba Liquor Industry Action Group attacks transport problem

Saferide is an initiative of the Toowoomba Liquor Industry Action Group, which provides a regular public transport service on 2 Toowoomba bus routes each Saturday night.

Saferide picks up from designated venues enroute to Toowoomba City. The return service delivers patrons ‘to their door’ for a flat fee of just $5 each way

On average, 60 people per week are using the Saferide services.

The aim of Saferide is to prevent people from driving their cars after consuming alcohol and to lessen the risk of drink-driving. The initiative operated with positive results during the recent festive season and, after a lay-off in January, returns in February to cater for university student patronage.
