Activus Transport is a not for profit organisation based in Sutherland Shire in Sydney. We have a proud tradition of providing transport to those people in the community who require additional assistance with their transport needs. The organisation was founded in 1988 with donations from a local Rotary club and the service has now grown to a fleet of 21 vehicles including wheelchair specific vehicles, buses with hoists and additional features such as lower steps and grab rails.
The organisation currently has the contract with Transport for NSW to provide Community Transport under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme , Community Transport Program, Health Related Transport and transport for people with disabilities. We have over 3,000 clients who receive direct transport services and Activus also provides buses to other community organisations to support their clients transport needs.
Our organisation has been an industry leader in moving to Consumer Directed Care in the transport sector and is currently providing transport to a wide range of customers in both Residential Aged care and Packaged Care Providers. We have recently formed a partnership with several other local community based organisations in Food Services, Community Aid, Home Modifications and Home Care under the name ‘Living Well Locally’. We plan to grow this partnership to provide local and reliable services to our customers to address the changes in government policy.
