Murray Mallee Community Transport Scheme & Australian Red Cross are both Community Passenger Networks (CPN). CPN’s play a key role as a central point of contact for the transport needs of its community. The CPN’s are funded by the Department for Communities and Social Inclusion and Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure. There are regional and metro based CPN’s in South Australia.
The role of a CPN is to:
- Provide information on transport services available in the region
- Coordinate transport services for members of their communities, particularly for transport disadvantaged*
- Provide ad-hoc transport where no other transport is available in the region and where resources are available to the CPN
*If you are:
- unable to access public transport due to distance, mobility or availability of services, and
- unable to drive yourself, and
- unable to access another person to transport you,
Please contact your local CPN to discuss how we can help you.
Murray Mallee Community Transport Scheme is a Community Passenger Network service, hosted by the Coorong District Council, in partnership with Karoonda East Murray District Council and Southern Mallee District Council.
Murray Mallee Aged Care Group Inc provides in home care services for aged members of the community to remain in their own homes.
Our research project ‘Linking Rural Older People to Community through Technology’ funded by the Australian Government of Department of Health and Ageing aims to improve access to regionalised services and the wider community for older Australians in rural and remote locations.
It is recognised that transport is a factor that limits many activities that older community members wish to undertake. Through the project, it has been highlighted that information on availability of all transport options was not always available to all members of the community.
As an aged care organisation, MMACG has limited options to improve existing transport services, instead dedicating funds to this transport information website for the whole of the Murray Mallee region.
