We are proud to announce that Local Transit is a finalist in the prestigious Melbourne Awards for 2021 – in the community impact section. Our selection as a finalist acknowledges the contribution Local Transit has made to the community in providing transport solutions for people with disabilities and other mobility limitations, and in providing work and development opportunities to disadvantaged refugee and migrant drivers.

Getting this far (to stage 3) in the awards process, is due to the hard work of  all our loyal and dedicated drivers who have continued to provide an excellent service throughout the covid challenges. Thank you to all our amazing drivers, who have gone above and beyond to keep passengers, especially vulnerable customers, safe, and to ensure that all our customers have been able to go where they need to safely and on time during these difficulties.

Being a finalist in the Melbourne Awards is a huge acknowledgement of the important work that drivers of wheelchair-accessible vehicles do in the community every single day and the huge contribution that these drivers make in the lives of people with disability in Melbourne.

The winners of the Melbourne Awards will be announced at a gala event at the Melbourne Townhall on 13 November 2021.
