Tablelands Community Transport

Tablelands Community Transport is a rural non-profit volunteer based organisation administered by the NSW Transport and auspiced under Uralla Shire Council to provide accessible transport options for eligible passengers across the Tablelands (Uralla and Armidale Dumaresq, and to a lesser extent some services to Walcha and Guyra) in an effort to alleviate transport disadvantages and increase mobility in a sustainable way.

Tablelands Community Transport offers you a way to get to essential services such as shopping, medical or social appointments, by using our vehicle, our Volunteer Driver Service, Taxi Voucher Scheme or private bus contractors.

To be eligible you must be a person living independently in the community who is either: frail aged, has a permanent, moderate disability, carers of frail aged or disabled people, transport disadvantaged or geographically isolated.

Tablelands Community Transport allocates resources in an equitable way to provide the most benefit to the greatest number of people.
