We are a not-profit community-based organisation helping approx 3,000 transport-disadvantaged clients to destinations throughout the beautiful Yorke Peninsula - and beyond, to other South Australian regional centres, Port Pirie and Adelaide. YPCT is an accredited Community Passenger Network ‘driven’ by the involvement of approximately 170 volunteers who deliver a range of transport options.

We operate as a direct provider of community transport options or as a broker with other transport providers, to meet the individual client's specific needs wherever possible. Nine paid staff work from our main office in Minlaton. YPCT is funded by Commonwealth & State funding, and we enjoy the generous support of several Yorke Peninsula agencies listed below.
