Shuttle offers lift to dawn services across Fraser Coast

A SHUTTLE service which has rocketed into a popular door-to-door passenger transportation will give back to the community this Anzac Day.

Steve from Atkinson's Specialist Shuttles said he is offering a volunteer transport collection service for the Anzac Day ceremonies in Hervey Bay.

"I made the proposal to the Hervey Bay RSL to offer my services to pick up members to take to the dawn service and parade," he said.

The service normally runs three times a day shuttling people to medical specialists, cruise ship and airport transfers, or fly-in, fly-out workers for people on the Fraser Coast.

Since its inception in February 2014, customer responses have been phenomenal.

"The response was the service was very much needed," he said.

"We have grown into a three-vehicle fleet, four staff and three services a day."

Shuttle specialist said 95 per cent of his client were over the age of 65.

"I'm just looking to give back to the community, especially the elderly.

"I am going to shut for Anzac Day, starting at 4am to offer our services to 21 diggers and picking them up free of charge to take them to the dawn march and the main parade."
