From 1st October 2019, the Manukau East Patient Transport Service (provided by MECOSS and Howick and Pakuranga Shuttles), will no longer provide transport services for patients.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
You can use the following options to organise transport to your medical appointments at Botany Super Clinic, Manukau Super Clinic and Middlemore Hospital:
1). St John Health Shuttle service
The St John Health Shuttle is expected to commence from early 2020 to provide a similar service in this area. The service will be free (koha/donations are welcome) and staffed with reliable, fully-trained drivers that will pick patients up, take them to their appointment, and drop them home safely again. For more information about the St John Health Shuttle, call toll free on 0800 9252 672 (0800 WAKA ORA).
2). Public Transport

3. Private Providers
There are a number of private transport providers operating in East Auckland, such as Driving Miss Daisy (0800 948 432) and Freedom Drivers (0800 956 956). These services are ACC registered vendors and price is quoted on the requirements of each individual journey.
Dependent on your individual circumstances, you may be eligible for additional support:
a). Total Mobility Scheme
The Total Mobility scheme operated by Auckland Transport, helps people with serious mobility constraints access subsidised door-to-door transport service. The scheme offers eligible registered individuals a 50% discount (up to a maximum of $40), on fares charged by contracted taxi providers in the Auckland region.
