What People Say About Local Transit

“I used this service ….. for a client of mine from the States…….. the service was exceptional, the driver was very polite and knowledgeable, and the cost was reasonable. At one point, the driver waited for 45 minutes without additional charge. I would recommend this service, particularly for persons with wheelchair accessible needs.”

Britney Simpson, person with a disability

I benefited from working with Local Transit during the covid restrictions with financial benefits, moral support, feeling united and as part of a community through good communication and information, especially about covid-19

Deeq, Local Transit Driver

“Thanks to the team for delivering a great service for our passengers. The data you have collated and presented is so valuable for us in being able to plan for future occupations, thank you”

Christiaane, Government Client

“When I have my wheelchair bound customer in my wheelchair-accessible vehicle, I feel they are more important than the Australian Prime Minister. I feel I am doing something that is important for the community. It’s a job that you don’t only do for the dollar value and that is what I tell my peers.”

Kayser, Local Transit Driver
