Community transport

Our Community Transport program has been impacted by COVID-19 over the past two years but we are very please to advise that both Dial A Bus and Outings & Excursions have returned to full service.

Community transport is available for:

  • people 65 years and older and
  • people of any age who have a disability (and their carer)

to help them to remain independent, access their local community and maintain social connections. 

Please note:

  • If you have been approved for an NDIS package please contact your NDIS provider for transport services.
  • Passengers need to be independent and mobile; wheelchairs and mobility aids can be accommodated. 
  • Passenger numbers are limited and will be allocated on a first to book basis.
