The Longford Care-A-Car committee has very successfully over the last 27 years provided a community car for medical transport to local residents of Longford, Perth, Cressy and surrounding areas.

The car is operated on a donation basis, with volunteer drivers giving their valuable time to make the car available to as many residents as ever possible.

This community service has been so successful that it has now two cars transporting approximately 100 people travelling some 4,500 kilometres per month.

If you have no other transport to medical treatment please do not hesitate to call the Longford Care-A-Car on 0419 565 911.
