Travellers Aid Disability Access Service (TADAS) is a non-profit independent organisation for people with disabilities who want to be more independent or travel without a carer.The service provides information and support to all people with disabilities regardless of sex or age who visit Melbourne. This includes country, interstate or overseas visitors, people with intellectual disabilities and their carers. Groups are also welcome. Assistance can be given with meals, wheelchair and stroller hire, lockers, gold phones, air conditioned lounge, ironing room and group meeting facilities, booking and assistance with wheelchair taxis. If you need to visit the city for the day or on a regular basis, we can arrange to meet you at the station (please ring first), help you to use the toilet and help you get to where you want. If you want to mingle with others we can provide a place to have a cuppa and much much more. People can also utilise meeting rooms, the photocopier and other office equipment by arrangement.
