Community transport keeps you connected

Are you aged over 65 (or 50 for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders) and without transport to get to medical appointments, shopping and social activities? CTST can help.

CTST is a community-based organisation that provides affordable door-to-door community transport.

Our vehicles and friendly volunteer drivers are located across the state, and you will enjoy peace of mind travelling with us in a safe environment.

Some of our vehicles can accommodate wheelchairs, and we will also transport your guide dog or assistance animal. Carers travel with us free of charge. If you have a carer or any other needs, simply let us know at the time of enquiry.

To access our service, you will need to call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 to request transport assistance. Once transport assistance is approved, call CTST on 1800 781 033 to register and we will soon be able to take you to where you need to go.

Our volunteer drivers can take eligible consumers anywhere around the state – to the shops, bank, post office or pharmacy – or to specialist medical appointments further afield. We can also transport you to social outings, such as lunch or coffee with friends or family.

“We know that for some people, transport can be difficult to access,” CTST CEO Lyndon Stevenson said.

“This is where CTST comes in. We are here to help remove those barriers to access by providing affordable community transport for people to maintain their independence and connect with their community.”
