Transport For Disabled and Aged Residents

The Redcliffe Community Bus for Disabled or Aged Inc is a not-for-profit organisation committed to assisting members of our community to retain some of their independence. Our organisation uses its own buses, dedicated volunteer bus drivers and bus helpers who live locally to provide transport to members of the Redcliffe and Deception Bay communities of Queensland, who would otherwise be restricted to their homes. Our service is door to door- we pick up our members from their home, take them shopping or on an outing then return them to their home. Volunteer helpers accompany all trips to provide assistance as needed but our service is not on-on-one and we do not provide transport for medical appointments.

Redcliffe Community Bus Outings                     Redcliffe Community Bus Story

We offer a number of different outings to community members through our community bus service. Our volunteers escort disabled and aged persons to the Peninsula Fair Shopping Centre, Kippa-Ring every Monday and Wednesday and to the Redcliffe Library every Thursday to borrow and renew books or just to see what’s new.  We also offer a number of day excursions or overnight trips to places of interest or entertainment every month. If you or someone you care for would like to join us on an outing, you can read more about membership here.

The Redcliffe Community bus for Disabled or Aged Inc. has its beginnings in 1981 when a group of Redcliffe residents met to decide what they could do to improve the lifestyle of the disabled residents of Redcliffe. The decision was made to take the residents on regular outings, to enjoy rime away from home and to make friends within the community. With the help of local council, local businesses and government funding, we were able to purchase our first small bus.

Since then the Redcliffe Community Bus for Disabled or Aged Inc. has increased membership to over 700 and is operating with 4 buses with a capacity ranging from 16 to 37 passengers. Two of our buses have wheelchair access and hoist.
