Getting to where you need to go can be expensive if you don’t have a car or can’t access public transport, this is more apparent on weekends or after business hours when private transport companies increase their charges.
The Community Transport Company knows there is a need in Coffs Harbour for affordable transport at other times than business hours, so we’ve introduced more flexible options for our customers.
The Community Transport Company, Chief Executive Officer Bethany Simmonds said we are extending our hours of operation to benefit people who cannot get out of the house after hours or on weekends, simply because it is too expensive.
“We’ve known for a long time, there is a need in the community for extended hours of our service, which is affordable, reliable and trustworthy,” Ms. Simmonds said.
“Our clients are people who have trouble using public transport because they may be living with a disability, are elderly, isolated or financially disadvantaged. Having reliable access to everyday services when they need and is what we are hoping to achieve by extending our services beyond normal business hours,” she said.
Existing clients can call the Northern Office on 1300 812 504, when needing an appointment out of normal business hours, to check the availability of transport for their needs.
“Everyone’s circumstances and needs are different, so we are changing the mindset of normal transport options for the community, focusing on the needs of our customers,” she said.
“We ask that our clients support the new service options but also be patient as we roll out the logistics of the program.”
TCTC have also a large range of shopping buses clients can utilise, these run in normal business hours picking our clients up from their door to a number of popular shopping centres. Information can be found at: www.communitytransport.net.au or call 1300 812 504.
