SERVICE NSW BUSHELENSBURGH residents will have easier access to NSW Government transactions when Service NSW’s new mobile service centre visits Charles Harper Park on Thursday May 16.

State MP for Heathcote Lee Evans said the custom fitted Service NSW bus will save people time and money and spend about 46 weeks a year on the road in areas where Service NSW has no existing physical presence.

“The buses will perform every major Service NSW transaction including Driver Knowledge Tests as well as Cost of Living appointments.”

Since 2013, Service NSW has become a one stop shop for vital services such as getting a birth certificate, a Seniors Card, driver licence and vehicle registration. It is also a gateway to household savings and can help people access important cost of living programs, such as Energy Switch, $100 Active Kids and Creative vouchers and cheaper Green Slips.

Mr Evans said the bus will roll through towns with advanced notice so the community knows when to expect a visit and what documentation is required to perform their transaction.”

“The Mobile Service Centre will be cashless, with payment options including cheque, EFTPOS or credit card.”

The bus will attend community events such as agricultural field days and festivals throughout the state to complement existing services.

The bus will at Charles Harper Park, Helensburgh next Thursday between from 9am and 3.30pm.
