MCVA Transport

MCVA Transport provides service to the frail and aged and younger people with disabilities and carers who are find it difficult to access mainstream transport options for non-urgent medical related appointments, shopping and social events. Medical appointments include doctors, optometrists, podiatrists, audiologists, chiropractors, physical therapy, dental, counselling and chiropractic services. MCVA cannot provide a service to anyone who requires assistance following any type of medical procedure.

MCVA Transport has two people movers, one which is fitted with a wheelchair loader to allow clients with mobility limitations, access to the service. A sedan is also available to assist clients who find it more suitable for their needs.

MCVA Transport drivers are employed to provide the highest standard of service to our users, with all drivers certified in first aid and operation of the wheelchair loader. Drivers hold driver’s authority and current criminal history checks to ensure quality.

Objectives

To improve the lives of others who are no longer able to utilise usual means of transport to meet their needs and participate within the community.

Mission Statement
