What is it?

The ACT’s Regional Community Services operate a flexible Regional Community Bus Service for ACT residents who are isolated due to a lack of other viable transport options.

The buses operate from Monday to Friday, generally within their own regional area. Pickup and set down points can be negotiated when making a booking.

Who is eligible?

People who may be eligible to use the service include:

  • Seniors with mobility or confidence problems
  • People living in nursing homes/retirement facilities
  • People with a permanent or temporary disability
  • People with health problems who cannot use regular ACTION bus services
  • People who are eligible for Home and Community Care transport but cannot access them for various reasons e.g. cannot self transfer
  • Carers accompanying a person described above
  • Parents with young children who are socially isolated and lack transport options
  • People from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds who lack support networks and have limited transport options

How do I apply?

To become a registered user of the community bus service you need to contact your local Regional Community Service (see below) to be assessed. The assessment process can be completed over the phone.

Who runs it?

Regional Community Services.
