What does Sydney’s lockdown mean to HKCT Clients?
While all non-essential journeys must be cancelled (ie Social outings), Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Community Transport is an essential service and continuing service during the lockdown order, to our eligible aged and community clients for essential journeys, ie Visiting doctors, specialists, medical tests or treatments, compassionate needs, as well as shopping services and shuttles. Masks must be worn by passengers unless proof of medical exemption can be provided. HKCT Drivers all wear masks, verify passengers are well enough to travel and meet restrictions. Their training in safe hygiene practices and completion of verifiable C-19 cleaning of every vehicles’ interior and exterior touchpoints should give every client confidence that their wellbeing and safety is, as always, the priority. No share rides in our sedans are occurring unless passengers are from the same household or a recorded care support person. Our shopping shuttles are continuing with bus capacity ensured at less than 50% with nominated seating, so multiple buses will ensure every shopper can be taken to pick up their groceries and produce. If any client cannot get to their pharmacy for supplies and that pharmacy does not deliver, HKCT will be happy assist. Maybe help with other vital supplies!
No HKCT client should feel isolated, insecure or forgotten during this necessary lockdown period. Our renowned client service coordinators remain available during 8.30am and 4.30pm and caring, committed driving team are ready to take you to where you need to be … even if your world is a little restricted for a short time!
We are funded by both the Commonwealth and State Governments,
and are supported by both the Hornsby Shire and Ku-ring-gai Shire Councils.
Our aim is to reach eligible clients living independently in the Hornsby and Ku-ring-gai local government areas who are isolated in their homes, and would like to maintain their independence.

I would like to praise all the drivers. They are kind, caring and most courteous. Nothing is a problem for them and their sense of humour is most refreshing. The outings are well planned so there is something to please most people. I really look forward to then and we always have some laughs and enjoyable meals.Judy
The service is marvellous.Hugh
We just want to thank you all for your support – from the lovely helpful telephone calls, the drivers and the overall service. Brilliant!Lesley & Stewart
You are doing a wonderful job, I am not sure what I enjoy most about the outings – the lunch, the friendly drivers, the company of friends or the drive – all make for a cheerful day out.Janice
Your drivers are absolutely wonderful and such gentlemen, they are always so kind and polite and incredibly helpful, they are wonderful! The taxi service today was tremendous also. We are so grateful, thank you so much and we will be using this service again.Helen
I think you are doing a great job. The outings provide a good way to stay in touch with people and make friends. The drivers are amazing in the care they take with every person.Judith
On behalf of Dad’s four kids (I’m the eldest) I want to thank your team for the opportunities for wonderful food, company and fun that you provided for dad.
He so much enjoyed the outings, from the great drivers (especially the one with the crazy songs and jokes, all of which he loved!), to the great company of the other participants and the amazing variety of excursions – most of which (with only a couple of amusing exceptions) gave everyone a fantastic meal, excellent value and a really great day out.
A couple of times I offered to drop him to the venue (such as when he was staying with me in the Blue Mountains) but he always insisted on going home in time to go in your bus as he enjoyed the experience so much!
Dad especially loved the lunches where there was someone singing or playing music, particularly if there was the chance to get up and dance. He told me that once he invited one of the ladies to dance and when she said “I can’t dance” he said “neither can I, let’s pretend” and away they went. He was always up for a party, fun and a good time, facing everything with a smile and inviting others to do the same.
Heartfelt thanks for the service you provide, it probably means much more than you realise to so many people – AlessandraAlessandra
