The Hon Warren Snowdon MP congratulates the Northern Territory Government, Katherine MLA Sandra Nelson and David Bursle, Director of Katherine Coaches, on finding a solution to keep the Bodhi Bus service operating in the Katherine Region.
It is pleasing to see that the Northern Territory Government understands how important the Bodhi Bus service is to remote communities, and that they have provided financial support to ensure its continuation.
The Bodhi Bus has provided vital transport services to the bush for eight years, but unfortunately this year the bigger than usual wet season has seen many costs impact on the business, meaning there was some doubt that it would be able to continue.
“With this vital support from the Northern Territory Government, the Bodhi Bus service can continue to operate its valuable service to the bush. I particularly congratulate Sandra Nelson for her advocacy on this issue,” Mr Snowdon said.
