Northside provides community transport to and from medical appointments for the frail and aged, individuals with a disability or their carers. This service provides easier and more convenient access to medical appointments, eases the financial and time constraints of medical services and provides a cost effective alternative to taxis.
We also offer assistance with transport for social outings, education programs and shopping trips – all with the aim of increasing the individual’s independence and participation in the community.
Northside’s Community Transport Services operate Monday through Friday from 7 am to 3.30 pm. A contribution for services is required from all passengers – service fees are currently set at $3 for a one way trip and $5 for a return trip. Weekly caps exist for clients requiring multiple trips per week.
