Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS -

Res­i­dents from the Dou­glas Shire, Ma­reeba Shire, the Table­lands, Cairns, the Cas­sowary Coast and Cook Shire are el­i­gi­ble to ob­tain a Dou­glas Card for free ac­cess on the Dain­tree ferry for four months which started from Novem­ber 1. Use of the Dou­glas Card will be re­stricted to fare cat­e­gories Mo­tor Car and Util­i­ties (pri­vate use), Pedes­tri­ans and Bi­cy­cles and Mo­tor Bikes. TPDD is work­ing with Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil to raise aware­ness of the free travel and the di­ver­sity of ex­pe­ri­ences on of­fer with the aim of at­tract­ing more re­gional vis­i­tors to the Dain­tree over the com­ing months. To ob­tain a free Dou­glas Card, ap­pli­cants need to pro­vide pho­to­graphic iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and ad­di­tional proof of res­i­dency with their ap­pli­ca­tion to con­firm lo­cal sta­tus. Ap­pli­ca­tion forms are avail­able from the Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil web­site, or vis­it­ing Coun­cil’s Moss­man Ad­min­is­tra­tion Build­ing, the Moss­man Li­brary or the Port Dou­glas li­brary kiosk.
