Welcome to the VCTA website incorporating community transport in Tasmania and Victoria. The sector is presently poised to confront the challenges and opportunities attached to commercial passenger vehicle reforms in Victoria, and federal reforms in aged and disability services via the My Aged Care (MAC) and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) systems. The VCTA continues to be at the forefront of these developments, advocating and working with government and service providers to improve transport for people and communities across the states of Tasmania and Victoria.
Not all people in the community are able to access public or private transport services. This maybe because of a disability that impacts on their mobility, they live in a geographically isolated place or they cannot afford the cost of transport. Community transport (CT) provides services, either direct transport or support to access public transport, for people who are transport disadvantaged. Community transport is affordable, flexible, accessible and adaptable to individuals’ needs enabling them to participate in daily life. Contact your local CT Service for further information.
As the community transport peak body , we’re here to represent the interests of people with transport needs from all parts of Tasmania and Victoria, and all kinds of community transport providers. Our membership and the composition of our Management Committee reflects this diversity, with our Chair, Rick Lawford, Deputy Chair, Lyndon Stevenson – born and bred in the Huon Valley, Tasmania, our Secretary, Rita Lang and our other members from far and wide across both states, including non-government service providers and local government.
As we work together to improve community transport in both states, we welcome input from everybody with positive ideas for change. Through the mechanisms established on this site, or via an old fashioned phone call to one or more of the VCTA Committee members, we’d welcome your input. If your organisation is not already a VCTA member, you might also like to consider joining and making the VCTA an even stronger and more effective voice for positive change.
