Out of area assistance

Out of area assistance is available to community members residing in the Community Transport: Wollongong- Shellharbour funded service area from Austinmer to Dunmore to support their well-being by providing petrol vouchers as assistance to meet their transport needs to out of area destinations.

Out of area assistance is avalable to assist with travel to destinations outside of the Community Transport funded service area (Austinmer to Dunmore).

Petrol vouchers with a value of $25.00 and $50.00 will be allocated where assistance using volunteer resources is not practical or appropriate. All requests for travel over 100kms will be issued with petrol vouchers only.

$25 allocation 50km and over from Wollongong
$50 allocation 100km and over from Wollongong

All requests for out of area assistance must include:

  • the intended destination contact details for the intended destination
  • where the person receiving the voucher is not able to self-manage their own transport, the end users details must be given to Community Transport
  • consumers requesting assistance to travel to out of area funerals and sorry business for relatives must also supply the contact details of a family member or family representative of the deceased person.
