What is Community Transport?

From remote and rural communities to suburbs and the inner city, community transport assists people from many walks of life to continue living independently.

Providing door to door services for people with transport challenges, community transport providers across Australia allow people to access life for social, family and cultural events, shopping and medical appointments.

Your local community transport provider can discuss your eligibility for subsidies, and if eligible, the assessment and registration process.
