Transport for over 65’s

Eligibility

  • Residents of the Gold Coast over 65 years
  • Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islanders over 55 years

Assessment

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.
