St. John Ambulance offers transport options in regional Queensland

04 April 2022

Do you know of someone who is unable to access their community due to a lack of transport? Did you know St. John Ambulance delivers such a service? They just might be your solution!

St. John Ambulance receives funding from the Queensland Government to provide subsidised community transport to people aged under 65 who are transport disadvantaged due to geographic location, financial disadvantage, disability, mental health conditions or other chronic health conditions.

Perhaps you know someone who has:

  • A disability and are not eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
  • An NDIS plan that does not include transport
  • An NDIS plan where the purpose for their transport need is different to that specified in their NDIS plan
  • An NDIS plan but the participant has exhausted all of their transport funding
  • A chronic illness, mental illness or other condition

Then let St. John’s Transport Services come to your rescue.

You can register as a NEW transport client with St. John Queensland and get your first five return trips for free (terms and conditions apply, visit https://www.stjohnqld.com.au/news/free-trips-for-under-65s/ for more information.

This service is available in north Brisbane, Redcliffe Peninsula, Caboolture, Maryborough, Hervey Bay and Bundaberg.

St. John understands that dependable and accessible transport is a great enabler to independence and good quality of life.

Whether you need to get to the doctors, go shopping, or are heading out socially – St. John’s Transport Services will get you there and back.

Last year, the service delivered more than 115,000 community transport trips across Queensland.

The St. John service is a reliable, pre-booked and cost-effective transport solution, transporting people of all ages, backgrounds, and needs. There’s no added charges for carers and there is plenty of room for walking frames or support equipment.

Transport doesn’t need to be a challenge. Whether it’s to get groceries or other household items, visiting your favourite café or catching up with friends or family – community transport services are a good alternative to public transport or other modes of transport.
