Lack of funding hits medical bus schedule
THE free Gladstone Rotary Medical Bus has been forced to reduce its operating days because of a lack of funds.
The bus travels from Port Curtis Place in Gladstone to Rockhampton five days a week, allowing aged patients to seek specialised treatment.
Starting from February 2, the service will operate three days - Monday, Tuesday and Fridays.
Santos GLNG has been funding the bus since 2011.
The bus has transported a total of 4000 patients during this time and has 10 seats available for passengers.
Until further funding is secured by GLNG or another company, the three-day transport system will run until Easter.
However, the team is taking bookings beyond Easter.
Call the Senior Citizens Centre on 4972 4465 for more information.
