Transport for clients over 65 years of age
Are you Eligible
• Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islanders over 55 years
• Approved by My Aged Care
To receive government subsidised transport, you must be assessed by My Aged Care.
The My Aged Care is part of the Australian Government’s changes to the age care system which was created to improve people’s choices, ensuring that they are accessing the necessary age care services with more control.
If My Aged Care consider you eligible for subsidised transport, they will do an over the phone interview followed up in many cases with a Home Support Assessment. If you are approved for transport assistance it is important that you request Transcord as transport service provider.
My Aged Care will then send Transcord your transport referral and then Transcord’s client intake staff will contact you to register you.

To access our services as a funded client it is important that you request Transcord Community Transport as your transport service provider to My Aged Care.

If you are not assessed as eligible for funded transport, we would be happy to supply non funded transport for you.
