Who We Are

Home > Who We Are

The purpose of Manning Valley Community Transport (MVACTG) is to provide transport services and undertake activities which alleviate transport disadvantaged within its operating area of MidCoast Council area.

Manning Valley and Area Community Transport is a not for profit community based organisation, registered as a Public Benevolent Institution Charity.

  • to provide, without discrimination, direct relief with transport services to people with disabilities and disadvantaged,
  • to provide access to services and facilities for those without adequate private transport,
  • to foster the development of public transport to suit the growing needs of the MidCoast Council areas,
  • to assess both established and innovative means of providing transport to meet community demand and to test and monitor their feasibility,
  • to make representations to Government authorities and to obtain adequate and continuing funding for appropriate and required public transport,
  • to assist local operators to co-ordinate and publicise transport resources,
  • to liaise and co-operate with other groups to promote and extend transport facilities according to demand.


MVACTG receives funding from various Federal and State Government Bodies to assist the frail aged and people with disabilities, living in our communities to remain independently living in their homes.

We are unable to provide transport to people who have moved out of their homes and are no longer living independently and have moved into assisted care such as a hostel or nursing home.
