Rides for Tamworth seniors to medical appointments, shops and social events
Public transport may still be difficult for our aging, frail or isolated residents to use due to infrequency or confusion. At Oxley Community Transport, we create opportunities for everyone to be active in their local community with a door-to-door transport service. Our staff and drivers are trained to provide you with the care and help you require during your travels.
We have a full fleet, including 3 wheelchair-accessible buses, 1 sedan and 6 midrange 4WDs. All are available for medical appointments, shopping trips and regular social events. Our transport service is accessible throughout the Tamworth and Liverpool Plains Shire areas, including:
Medical & Specialist Appointments
We provide local medical transport in our own service vehicles or volunteer’s cars. Our drivers will pick you up at your front door and take you to any appointments with your general practitioner or specialist doctor.
Department of Veteran Affairs Gold cardholders can access medical transport services for free.
Every 6 weeks, we organise group, ladies and men’s social outings for our clients around Tamworth or out of town.
Some of our fun and engaging trips go out to Armidale, Willow Tree and Gunnedah. Oxley Community Transport also arranges a Seniors Movie Day at the Forum 6 Cinemas to see the latest flicks. Social outings are also available for clients in Quirindi and Barraba. Please contact the relevant offices further information.
Stock up on all your groceries and have a great day out with our convenient guided shopping trips. The frequency of these trips are as follows:
- South & West Tamworth – fortnightly on Tuesdays in our wheelchair accessible buses
- North & East Tamworth – fortnightly on Wednesdays in our wheelchair accessible buses
- Quirindi – weekly on our hospital bus
- Manilla – fortnightly on our minibus
- Barraba – fortnightly with our service car
