What vehicles are available?
For errands and the like, we can arrange community cars (either our own or those of our volunteers) to pick people up individually. For group events, we have a bus and minibus that can get your elderly relative and all of their friends wherever they need to be and safely back home.
Which areas do you cover?
At Oxley Community Transport, we mainly focus on Tamworth but can also transport people in Quirindi, Walhallow, and other nearby villages.
Are your vehicles wheelchair accessible?
Our buses, minibuses, and service vehicles are fully wheelchair-friendly, and our passenger assistants will make sure wheelchairs of any kind are secured before beginning the journey.
Can I volunteer?
Conditions pending, you absolutely can! If you want to help the elderly, we are always recruiting additional drivers and assistants and will provide full training to anyone interested. We are a non-profit organisation, but we will reimburse you for every kilometre driven if you use your car.
