The lack of transport is a major problem for many Australian communities and it’s a problem shared by community organisations working with vulnerable people, whether its youth, refugees, people with disabilities or older people.
The solution lies not only in mobilising local people in their neighbourhoods to lend a hand, (whether it’s to offer a lift or drive a bus) but it also requires community organisations to take collective action and work together for the ‘common good’ of all transport users.
That’s why at Peninsula Transport Assist we have a partnerships first approach. We will work with all community groups, large and small, from hospitals, to schools, to aged care services. And work to find the best possible community transport solution through our vehicle and volunteer sharing model.
Whether it’s recruiting volunteer drivers, coordinating passenger bookings or sourcing vehicles so together we can overcome transport disadvantage.
