How the scheme can be used

If you are having transport difficulties in the region, you can completed a personalised transport assessment reuqest. On completion of this form, you will be advised of all of your available options in the region, and if eligible these options will include volunteer driven vehicles. You may be frail, elderly, have a disability, or simply be isolated. Transport assessment forms are available from the Berri and Barmera Council Offices and must be returned to the Scheme Co-ordinator, Box 229, BERRI SA 5343.

For what purposes can the Scheme be used?

Trips can be requested for ad-hoc last resort transport, and are dependent on resource availability. Trips are not personalised service, and you may find yourself sharing a vehicle with another client, or having to wait either side of your appointment for the next available vehicle. We can provide transport information to anyone, and encourage the use of existing transport services. We are unable to provide transport to regular services, or hospital transfers.
