Ride With Us

Redcliffe Community Bus Outings

Many disabled and elderly persons in the Redcliffe and Deception Bay areas live at home but cannot easily venture out on their own. It is difficult for them to access shopping and library facilities or to go further afield to visit places of interest, and many do not feel confident about going on such trips alone. The Redcliffe Community Bus for Disabled or Aged Inc services this need at a very low cost and in a friendly, supportive and caring environment. Because our trips are run for Members only, anyone wanting to travel with us must meet the requirements of membership (as detailed on the Join Us page).

Shopping Trips — Members Only

We run excursions several times a week to allow these members of our community to access facilities, purchase necessities and simply enjoy an outing with friends.

From: Our helpers and volunteer bus drivers will pick you from your front door and return you afterwards. They’ll even take your parcels to the door for you, making the outing as easy for you as possible.
