Community Transport with Belconnen Community Service

Community Transport: with transport@bcs

transport@bcs receives funding from the Department of Social Services (DSS) and ACT Health Directorates Home and Community Care (HACC) We coordinate a friendly, safe, flexible and reliable community transport service for people who are ageing and/or people living with a disability and their carers living independently in our community. Providing a door to door service, our focus is on promoting the independence and community involvement of program participants. For a small fee Community Transport is provided to:

  • Medical and paramedical appointments
  • Social and recreational activities
  • Shopping trips
  • Group outings
  • BCS coordinated social groups are also supported by transport@bcs

transport@bcs operates 7 days per week between the hours of 7:00am and 7:00pm, (excluding public holidays and weekend transport is currently dependent on the availability of volunteers) with bookings and administration available Monday to Friday from 9:00am – 5:00pm. On April 1st 2014, transport@bcs commenced operations of an ACT wide transport service for those aged over 65 or for those over 50 who identify as being of an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background. This expanded service is now available to eligible people living anywhere in the ACT and creates an environment of transport choice.

October 1st 2014 is another important milestone in the long history of our transport program as transport@bcs introduced a new wheelchair accessible commuter to our transport fleet. This vehicle will be used to provide wheelchair accessible transport and group bookings and is an exciting addition to our program as we work to provide a highly responsive Community Transport Program.

Access to a reliable and flexible transport service can be a great enabler, so why not talk to the team at transport@bcs to see what transport needs our program can assist you with.

Go Social: transport@bcs recently launched “Go Social”, a new transport initiative with a focus on the social and community engagement of our eligible participants and offers weekend social transport, weekday Shopper Shuttles and a home visiting service.
