Social outings transport in Sydney’s Inner West

We are excited to be back on the road again and offer a new social outings transport calendar to help you explore Sydney and its surrounds.

Currently due to restrictions imposed due to the Covid19 pandemic, Connect is tailoring social outings for those who wish to get out and about, ensuring they are able to do so as safely as possible.  We have capped the amount of clients on the bus to 8 to ensure the practicing of social distancing, and ensuring vehicles are cleaned thoroughly after each use.

With all this in mind, the calendar for June is a lighter version of our usual offering. While locations we frequently visit remain closed to the public, Connect is offering more scenic drives, and outdoor dining experiences such as picnics.

Bookings are now open for the July – August social outings calendar.   As the weather becomes cooler, we are fortunate to see the continuation of establishments reopening their doors, so that we are able to once again offer a wider variety of choices to our clients.  We are continuing to favour long scenic drives and visits to lookouts and places of interest, but as the restrictions continue to ease, we look forward to offering all our usual outings again in the spring.

Our regular outings on offer include visits to nurseries and botanical gardens, scenic drives to the Illawarra region, Central Coast, Northern Beaches, Blue Mountains and the Southern Highlands.   We go to shows and plays, and visit historical sites, working farms, zoos, parks and often take a boat ride or cruise along one of Sydney’s many beautiful waterways.

Most recently we have introduced weekends away and overnight stays for the more adventurous travellers.

There is something for everyone!

What do I need to know about booking social outings?

Our Social Outings service provides a door-to-door service (picking you up from home and taking you back). You must be ready when the driver calls and follow his/her directions.

Drivers will help you on and off the vehicle if needed. Our outings are for seniors and those who require additional transport help.

If personal care is needed e.g. with shopping, you can take a carer/relative with you. Carers travel for free.

Wheelchair modified vehicles are available but need to be booked in advance.

In addition to transport fees, most outings include other costs such as lunch and occasionally entry fees to specific destinations. These costs are additional and need to be paid separately on the day. However, we do attempt to find good value destinations.

How often do outings take place?

We provide several outings per month offering a variety of activities and locations.

Our outings calendar is released regularly here on our website, on Facebook and also mailed out to all our valued clients.

Please contact us if you wish to receive this calendar on a regular basis.
