Community Transport Services Tasmania Inc. (CTST) is a state-wide community based not-for-profit organisation that provides affordable door-to-door community transport for the over 65s, and people with a disability.
We help our clients to continue living independently within their community by allowing them to continue to attend appointments such as regular visits to the doctor, trips to the shops or hairdressers or to events such as flower shows, concerts or sporting events.
Provides a statewide door to door transport service to the aged, people with disabilities and disadvantaged members of the community. Transport is provided for shopping, pay bills, social outings, non-urgent medical appointments etc. There is a fee associated with the service and is calculated on distance traveled. The aim is to assist clients to stay independent in their homes.
Reliant on volunteers CTST provide the vehicles, train and support the volunteers. Fee is an inhibitor to some clients as it is based on distance travelled and not on capacity to pay. However there is an opportunity for a client to discuss options with the Coordinator at time of booking. Federally funded for 80% of budget.
