Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders 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.
"These buses will take Service NSW to people's front steps, saving them not only time, but also money," MP said.
"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.
"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," Mr Saunders said.
"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 mobile service centre will be in Trangie on Tuesday, June 11 from 9.30am to 3pm, and from the same times in Narromine on Thursday, June 13.
