Medical Transport Car
The Medical Transport Car provides transport to medical, specialist and hospital appointments. Transport arrangements must be made in advance, appointments are normally one way due to the heavy demands on the vehicle. The Medical Transport Car is driven by friendly volunteers, an assessment by a staff member is required before this service can be accessed.
A mobility assessment is required to access the Medical Transport Car and Home Support Van Program to ensure passenger safety when alighting and departing the vehicle and safety for the volunteers.
Community Bus Program
The Community Bus operates throughout the Council area on numerous fixed routes. This service is available to all residents.
The Community Buses are also available for hire to eligible Community Groups when not in use in a fixed route service.
