MECOSS Community Van

Lindsay Upton from Manukau East Council of Social Services (MECOSS)

Transportation challenges can be a significant barrier to inclusion and access for many groups of people.
The Community Van was initiated with the aim to enable local organisations with few or no transport alternatives, greater access to services and events within the Auckland region.
While the Community Van's most common use is to transport people to access their shopping, it also provides groups with an opportunity to extend their program options at an affordable cost.

Past trips made by not-for-profit groups have included bowling and ice cream trips, visits to the theatre , the New Zealand Martime Museum, Howick Historical Village and the Auckland Botanic Gardens.

Since MECOSS began this service in May 2021, the Community Van has transported 100s of local residents and travelled over 1000 kilometers' within Auckland's boundary.

Demand continues to grow with over 6 different organisation's having taken advantage of this community resource.

For more information about booking the Community Van for group outings going-forward-from and including COVID-19 Alert Level 2, please contact MECOSS.
