Transport

003-1-300x225

Our Volunteer Task Force (VTF) transport service delivers clients to:

  • General medical and specialist appointments
  • Shopping
  • Social appointments
  • The whole metro region including Mandurah.

We use:

  • Specially trained drivers in taxis from Perth’s three taxi companies
  • two of our own 8-seat vehicles with trained, paid drivers.

Our subsidised service keeps costs down by ‘batching’, that is, clients may share the vehicle with others travelling a similar route.

Transport bookings:

  • must be made at least two days before the journey
  • require up to a week’s notice when around the date of a public holiday
  • cannot be used as a same day or emergency service
  • to book, ring 9318 5777.

How much does it cost?

0 – 10 km   $5.00 each way
11 – 30 km    $8.00 each way    (most metro trips are within 30 km)
31 – 60 km $10 each way   (50 km maximum for social visits)
61 – 99 km    $15.00 each way    (for hospital or specialist appointments only)

Our VTF transport service is funded by Home And Community Care (HACC).
