Following months of uncertainty, the Victorian State Government has announced it will continue to fund the Overland for three years to the tune of $3.8 million.
The service, which is used by about 30,000 people each year, provides a vital transport link for communities in regional South Australia including Murray Bridge and Bordertown.
Councillor Mat O'Brien has been advocating for the continuation of funding ever since the Marshall Government discontinued its $330,000 per year subsidy.
Mr O'Brien joins Jennie Lenman to discuss.
