Community car

Members of the public will have easier access to a community vehicle following the District Council of Mallala’s successful application to the Mid North Community Passenger Transport Network (MNCPTN).

DCM chief executive officer, Charles Mansueto, said a vehicle would soon be based at council’s Mallala depot, giving residents who currently have no access to a car more options.

The MNCPTN have cars based in other towns which are available five days a week and are driven by volunteers, but this would be the first time a car was based locally.

Eligible residents may be taken to medical appointments, shopping and other social activities (conditions apply).

• Bookings are essential and can be made by contacting the Mid North Community Passenger Transport Network on 8842 1677.

To become a volunteer driver, contact the service on the above  number.
