Community cars

Our community cars are driven by volunteer drivers who are fully trained, assessed and security cleared.

To use the community car service you must be a resident of The Barossa Council or Light Regional Council and be ‘transport disadvantaged’ (for example, you do not have a licence, access to a car or can’t drive because of age or health reasons).

If you are aged 65 years and over (50 and over for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people) you must be registered and referred by My Aged Care (1800 200 422) before using the service for the first time.

Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. We are unable to transport children who require a child restraint or booster seat.

Fees

Our fees are subsidised, the standard fares can be found in the Fees and Charges Register. As a guide a return trip to Adelaide costs around $30. Your carer or companion can travel with you at no cost. Hardship allowances may apply.

Community car enquiry

Ideally, cars should be booked 2-3 weeks in advance. However, we will do our best to accommodate your booking at shorter notice if a car is available. If you're in need of a community car, please enquire by filling out the form below or contact the Community Transport team on 8563 8411 during business hours.
