The Accessible MPV Service of ONE HOPE CHARITY will be officially launching on the 1st of July, providing free transportation services for the poor, the disabled, wheelchair users, the elderly, and pregnant women.
On June 16, the Accessible MPV Service launching ceremony was held by the chairman, Dato' Chua Sui Hau, advisor, Datuk Seri R. Arunasalam, accompanied by Penang State’s Executive Councillor (EXCO), YB Chong Eng, Berapit district state councilor Heng Lili, and Bukit Tengah district state councilor, Gooi Hsiao Leung
The main purpose to launch 'The Accessible MPV Service' is because there was found that many applicants for assistance were unable to travel to the hospital for regular checkups, and collect medicines, resulting in aggravation of the condition.
The e-hailing service is also a huge and heavy burden for low-income or poor families.
The Accessible MPV Service is specially designed to provide free transportation services for the disabled, wheelchair users, the elderly, pregnant women, and patients. Currently, this service is provided to the residents of Seberang Tengah to transport one-way or two-way to Bukit Mertajam Hospital, Hospital Seberang Jaya, and district clinic Seberang Tengah
This car has been modified, and one of the back seats has been changed to a lift chair, which is convenient for wheelchair users to get on and off. Due to short of manpower, our driver only provides transportation services, excluding registration assistance, accompanying doctor visits, taking medicines, etc.
The service's operating hours are from Monday to Saturday, 8.30 am to 4.30 pm. Each trip can carry up to 4 passengers. Wheelchair users must be accompanied by family members or friends.
In order to facilitate the time and route arrangement, the public needs to register 5 days in advance before making an appointment. Any inquiries, registration, or reservations can contact the ONE HOPE CHARITY hotline at 016-920 2920. The Accessible MPV Service is always free.
This service will also cover the transportation of tertiary students with disabilities to the university dormitory or to register for the start of the semester, and priority will be given to Penang Island and Northern Tertiary Colleges.
