Need a bus with wheelchair access? You found it
Flintwood’s wheelchair accessible vehicle is available for hire. It’s a Toyota HiAce and it’s been designed to transport people with disabilities or the frail aged. It comes with a Disabled Parking Label to make your journey easier.
Only one passenger must be an eligible NDIS participant for your party to be eligible to hire the bus.
Think of what you could do with such a bus! Holidays, day trips, shopping trips, outings to concerts and picnics, the beach, the country…we leave it to your imagination.
And even easier…anyone with a C class licence can drive it. No special courses, just an induction by staff (and some common sense). You can even do your induction on the day you hire, just make sure you plan some extra time so our staff can show you how everything works, including the Wheelchair Q’straints and the hoist.
Cost is $40 per day, and a full tank of petrol on return.
Flintwood are happy for the bus to get out and about because it means our participants are getting out and enjoying life. It’s available for individuals, community groups, families and service providers.
The van can accommodate either 9 passengers and 2 wheelchairs or 10 passengers and 1 wheelchair (and a driver).
The bus is available 24/7 but pick up and drop off at Flintwood’s head office at Unit 4/10 Gladstone Rd Castle Hill, must be between 8.00am and 4.00pm Monday to Friday (unless arranged prior).
Call 9630 1777 to book. Make sure you book your induction if it’s your first hire. There’s forms to fill out too, but they don’t take long.
