Service NSW “Kangaroo Bus” visiting Aboriginal communities


Aboriginal communities in regional and remote NSW will soon have better access to government services and transactions, such as driver licence and vehicle registration renewals, Seniors Card applications, and driver testing, with a dedicated Service NSW Mobile Service Centre.

The “Kangaroo Bus” is expected to hit the road in mid-June 2024 and will visit more than 40 locations as part of a regular 10-week loop, visiting 10 more communities than previous Mobile Service Centre routes.

Communities that will get a vist from the Kangaroo Mobile Service Centre are typically 30 minutes or more away from the nearest Service NSW Centre, with the new Mobile Service Centre helping people save time and money.

The full suite of 1300 NSW Government transactions and services will be available on the spot, whether it is vehicle and driving transactions, applying for a Working with Children Check, or accessing support for cost-of living initiatives.

Revenue NSW Aboriginal Outreach officers and the NSW Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages community engagement team will also be available at certain locations to provide further assistance to customers.

A Business Concierge from the Service NSW Business Bureau will also be available to provide personalised guidance on how to start and grow a business, as well as navigate relevant business regulations and licence applications. Customers can also get connected with an independent Aboriginal business advisor for free one-on-one coaching and advice on topics including business planning, selling to government, marketing and cash flow.

More information on the new Mobile Service Centre route including schedule and community locations is available on the Service NSW website.
