Mid North Community Passenger Network

Essential travel options for the entire community. We will get you there with care.

Volunteer Drivers

Our goal is to provide, in partnership with the Community, State and Local Government and Private Enterprise, a sustainable community passenger transport service that has the capacity to meet the growing needs of transport for disadvantaged communities within the Mid North Region.

Volunteer drivers provide transport assistance to people who are identified as transport disadvantaged by the Network Coordinator using cars provided by the Network based at local hospitals throughout the area.

Destinations for client trips may include the following:

  • Health and medical services.
  • Social wellbeing.
  • Daily living activities.
  • Shopping to local centres.


Drivers are usually only required to drive within business hours. Volunteer drivers are always consulted before a trip and always have the option of saying no; we understand that our Volunteers have additional commitments and personal requirements.
