Let us get you there with care
Driving Miss Daisy BOP companion driving service offers independence and peace of mind for anyone who cannot drive themselves. Our friendly drivers take the time to help as much or as little as required. Whether you need help with shopping or at appointments, or would like an occasional outing, our service provides much more than a taxi at a highly competitive rate.
Driving Miss Daisy BOP is an ACC Registered Vendor. If you have had an accident and need transport to medical and accident-related appointments, ask your ACC Case Manager for us by name and quote our ACC Vendor number which is VAC759.
We are also now able to provide the Total Mobility discount for the transport portion of your trip. If you do not have a Total Mobility card, but think you may qualify, please see the Bay of Plenty Regional Council website or contact Mary McLaren on 0800 884 880.
Friendly, professional drivers
Many clients are very particular about their driver - and rightly so. Our friendly drivers set us apart from other providers and we are happy for clients to request a specific driver either by name or gender. Our drivers all hold a current P endorsement and have been police checked for your peace of mind. Between them, they have many years experience in nursing and caregiving which enables them to provide whatever support or assistance our clients may need.
We have a range of vehicles so are sure to have something to suit most clients and situations. As well as standard cars, we have vehicles with higher seating and swing out front seats to make entry and exit much easier. We have four wheelchair-capable vehicles able to take between one and six seated passengers plus one wheelchair. Please ask if you have any specific requirements so we can work out the most suitable vehicle for you.
We are based in Tauranga and cover the surrounding area.
If you live in the Omokoroa, Katikati and Waihi area, or in Te Puke, Whakatane and Eastern BOP, and need to come to Tauranga - please contact us for a quote.
We can also take you further afield, to Hamilton or Auckland, for example and all trips, whether local or further away can be quoted in advance.
We operate Monday - Friday: 6am - 6pm (approx).
