There's growing community concern about the lack of public transport in Jindabyne.

Many locals and visitors have turned to social media to vent their frustrations, with one woman saying its embarrassing the town cant offer a taxi service.

A few commented that it's dangerous, visitors not realising there's minimal transport and then having to take their bags, with some having to hitchhike.

Many offered the idea of the ride sharing service - Uber - however the low summer population doesn't meet their requirements.

Police are warning the community with limited transport to not drink and drive after a night out.

Labor Leader Luke Foley has laid out his commitments to regional and rural NSW if elected in 2019.
 
In his Budget Reply speech, Mr Foley reiterated Labor’s support for selling the state’s share of the Snowy Hydro scheme to the Federal Government – but only if every dollar of the proceeds are spent in regional NSW.

The sale would also be on the conditional guarantee of ongoing public ownership.
 
He says the $4 to $5 billion in proceeds will be used to improve regional schools, TAFEs, hospitals, roads and sporting infrastructure.
 
In the lead up to 2019, Mr Foley says he will visit the regions to hear directly from local communities.
