Transport is essential to our quality of life. Those who can’t drive a car or access public transport may miss out on many basic services and lose touch with friends and family. Our volunteers fill this transport gap by driving older people and those with a disability, who would otherwise struggle to go out, to appointments and social outings.
Peninsula Transport Assist helps individuals and groups who live in the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula regions to get out and about to anywhere in Melbourne.
Volunteer drivers using their own cars take people to appointments, to shopping centres and other places – and back home again – at cost-effective rates.
Volunteer bus drivers are available to transport groups from community organisations in minibuses.
All our volunteers are highly trained.
While this service is mostly used by older people, we accept all age groups, including school groups, church groups, sporting and social clubs, residents of retirement villages and sporting and social clubs. They must be residents of the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula region of Melbourne.
Trips for individuals in volunteers’ own cars are charged at a kilometre rate. On average the cost is less than a taxi fare.
Minibuses are hired out to groups on an at-cost basis, plus a small booking fee.
