Seniors Information

Here is a list of some services and activities offered by Brisbane City Council and Brisbane organisations for seniors:

Council Cabs

The Council cab service organises shared taxis at scheduled times for residents who find it difficult to get to their local shops. 
 
You can use the Council cab if you are:

  • over 60 years old, and
  • mobility impaired, and
  • a Pensioner Concession Card or Centrelink Seniors Card holder

If you are eligible to use this service, you may be accompanied by a carer or a child under your care.
 
To make sure there is room for everyone, shopping is limited to five regular plastic bags or three recycled bags, or the equivalent, per passenger.
 
The Council cab operates weekly in most Brisbane suburbs. In some areas, services are offered twice a week. The service picks you up from your home and takes you to your local shopping centre.
 
Each one-way trip costs between $1 and $3. This fare is paid to the driver as you board.

To book the Council cab service, phone 07 3403 2227 unless another phone number is listed beside your suburb.
 
Reserve your seat on a Council Cab up until 12 noon the day prior to using the service. Wheelchair accessible vehicles are available on request.

Immunisation

Have you had your flu vaccine or avoided doing so because of financial pressures? Brisbane City Council can help you save your time and money and keep safe this flu season.

All seniors (65 years and over, or 50 years and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders), including international and interstate visitors, can use Council's free immunisation service for Pneumococcal and Influenza vaccines. Clinics run from March to June (traditionally flu season).

For further information phone (07) 3210 6983.
