Why choose Oxley Community Transport?

Mobility is generally an ongoing issue for the elderly in our community. Elderly people may have issues of mobility regarding their physical ability to walk, drive or access public transport.

They may also have mobility issues in terms of limited access to transport options. Relatives or friends with cars are not always available and it may be difficult to access these cars if they’re not suitable for someone in a wheelchair. Taxis may not be a financially viable option.

Fortunately, an organisation such as Oxley Community Service exists, directly addressing the transport needs of the elderly living in the Tamworth and Liverpool Plains Shire localities.

With 30 years of experience, our not-for-profit organisation offers a fleet of wheelchair accessible buses, minibuses and service vehicles and is largely run by a dedicated team of fully-trained volunteer drivers.

We Provide You with Transportation Independence

The ethos of Oxley Community Transport Service is all about maintaining and improving independence for elderly people.

In this regard, a number of door-to-door services are offered, including:

  • Medical and specialist appointments: We can transport you to and from appointments in one of our service cars or a volunteer’s car, depending on your level of mobility. This service is free to Department of Veteran Affairs Gold Card-holders.
  • Regular shopping trips: We run a number of weekly and fortnightly shopping trips by wheelchair accessible bus, minibus and service car. Locations covered include Tamworth (north, south, east and west), Quirindi, Manilla and Barraba. We are also offer scheduled shopping trips for elderly people based in other locations.
  • Hospital and cemetery visits: Our drivers are only too willing to enable you to visit loved ones in hospital or to pay your respects to deceased loved ones

More Than a Transport Service

Oxley Community Transport Service is more than a transport service. We are also about celebrating and building our community and providing a service that is sensitive to the needs of elderly people, from the care and compassion shown by our staff to the social support offered by our programs.

  • Care and compassion: Our staff (both paid and volunteer) are committed to assisting elderly people to live an independent life. Many of our staff have a longstanding association with the organisation and with the elderly people who use our service, and all staff receive ongoing training.
  • Social support: While our scheduled shopping trips are about stocking up on supplies, they’re also a social outing and a chance to catch up with others on and off the bus. We also offer social outings every six weeks for ladies, men and mixed groups, such as trips to locations of interest outside Tamworth and for Seniors Movie Day in Tamworth. We work closely with the Walhallow Aboriginal Corporation to provide a range of transport services to their community members.
