Woden Community Service provides a range of transport options for eligible people.
Transport is available Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 4.00pm and contributions vary according to distance. This is a very popular service and capacity is limited therefore bookings should be made at least four days prior to travel.
Am I eligible?
To be eligible you must:
- Live in Chifley, Curtin, Deakin, Farrer, Garran, Hughes, Isaacs, Lyons, Mawson, O'Malley, Pearce, Phillip, Torrens or Yarralumla
- Be aged over 65 years or over 50 years for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders
- Require low level, basic service
- Not be receiving support through the National Disability Insurance Scheme or an aged care package.
Service user contributions
Service users are required to pay a contribution towards the cost of services they receive from WCS for Transport services. We recognise that sometimes circumstances may make it difficult to pay some or all of the contributions for service and we will always look at individual situations.
