Profile: GREAT Community Transport

AUSTRALIA - GREAT Community Transport is a non-profit organization that provides transport services for eligible disabled persons and the elderly in the Blue Mountains-Penrith Valley area outside of Sydney, Australia. It started in 2004 after two local organizations amalgamated to provide better and more efficient service. Their volunteer drivers and care attendants provide transport to a variety of social and medical destinations. Besides donations, they also receive public funding - in particular to provide access to healthcare within the region. The 2nd video below, features a representative from GREAT Community Transport speaking at a NSW Health public forum in regards to non-emergency patient transport funding.
