Since 2008, the Hinchinbrook Community Support Centre has been meeting the transport needs of the community.  Providing a service not only to the transport disadvantaged, but grandparents, young families, local community groups and events. 

Trips to the doctors, shopping, social outings and delivering the punters safely home after the Ingham Races, the Hinchinbrook Community Support Centre thanks the community for their patronage.  After 13 years, it has now come time to pass the baton to TransitCare, one of Queensland’s largest and most experienced community transport providers.

For over 27 years TransitCare have assisted seniors, the socially isolated, those who are transport disadvantaged and people with disabilities to live independently in their own homes and remain connected to their communities.   TransitCare vehicles travel throughout Brisbane South, Logan, Redlands, Ipswich, Beaudesert and the Scenic Rim, Townsville, Cairns, Charters Towers and surrounding areas, assisting people to travel to their appointments and social activities. They are now proud to be offering these same services to the people of Ingham. 

TransitCare employs local, friendly and caring drivers who will collect clients from home and take them to hospital and medical appointments, the pharmacy, allied health appointments, general shopping and groceries, the bank and post office, the gym, swimming and the library, the hairdresser, beautician and personal grooming, social and recreational outings and visiting family and friends.

This service is pre-booked and door-to-door and a small co-payment is charged, depending on the distance travelled. TransitCare is a not-for-profit organisation funded by the Commonwealth and State governments. We are respectful of the diversity and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.
