Who we are
Leichhardt Marrickville Community Transport Group (LMCTG) has provided transport services since 1983. We cover both the Leichhardt and Marrickville Municipalities, which are adjacent to and directly west of the City of Sydney.
Community Transport is about equal access – transport to access all the facilities and services that everyone needs.
Our aim is to address the transport needs of people who cannot use, cannot access, or cannot afford, public or private transport.
Service Coverage Area
All Community Transport services in NSW are available on a geographic basis. It’s not where you want to go that counts – it’s where you live. LMCTG Provides services for people living in the Leichhardt and Marrickville Local Govt Areas (Council areas).
