Passengers travelling with a mobility aid
Passengers travelling in a manual or motorised wheelchair will be lifted in a lift, while seated in their wheelchair to gain access to the coach. The passenger will then be moved from their wheelchair into the coaches ADR compliant seat, using a slideboard if necessary. The wheelchair will be stored underneath the vehicle for the duration of the trip.
If this is not possible, the passenger may be able to travel seated in their wheelchair, which will be anchored to the floor, providing that the wheelchair complies with either:
- Australian Standard AS/NZS 3696.19
- International Standard ISO 16840-4:2009
Non-compliant wheelchairs and scooters cannot be used while travelling and must be stowed in luggage compartments or secured inside the coach cabin using the anchorage system.
If you are travelling with a mobility aid, please contact our booking office on (61) 13 22 51 or forward an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can assist with your travel plans.
Passengers with a carer
If you are unable to travel alone and require assistance, you must travel with a carer or chaperone. A 50% discount on the full adult fare (express ticket only) is offered to the carer to accompany the passenger. Tickets must be booked by phone and any booking fee will be waived. Coach drivers/staff are only permitted to provide basic assistance. Drivers are unable to assist with access to facilities, lift or carry passengers, administer medicines or perform any medical procedures.
Passengers travelling with a medical condition
If you have a medical condition, it is recommended that a carer/chaperone accompany you on their journey. In the event that you become ill during the journey, the appropriate emergency services will be contacted and the continuation of travel will be determined by the emergency services personnel. Our coach drivers are not trained or permitted to administer any medicines or perform medical tasks.
Passengers travelling with a Service Dog
Certified and Registered Service Dogs are welcome on-board Murrays Coaches. Certified Assistance Animals can travel free of charge when in the company of the passenger, provided they pose no risk or hinder the safe operation of the service. An extra seat will be allocated for the Assistance Animal. If two seats together are not available, the Passenger will need to choose another service that has sufficient seats available.
A service dog is trained to aid a person with a disability. Service Dogs include Guide Dogs, Hearing Dogs and Assistance Dogs.
For passengers who need to travel with a service dog please call us on 13 22 51 and one of our friendly team members will assist you to make your booking. The telephone booking fee is waived in this instance.
