Driving Miss Daisy BOP

Driving Miss Daisy BOP provides personal driving assistance and companionship for older people, children, those with disabilities and anyone who is unable to drive themselves. If you don’t want to - or cannot - rely on family and friends to get you out and about, use Driving Miss Daisy’s safe, friendly and reliable service to help you maintain your independence.

Our service is much more than just door to door.  We can help you do your shopping and put it away afterwards; we can go into your appointment with you and report back to family and carers; if you are leaving hospital, we can come up to the ward and collect you and make you a cuppa when you get home.  We love to go the extra mile for our clients.

Our friendly drivers all hold a ‘P’ Endorsement, a first aid certificate and have been police vetted. Most have backgrounds in caregiving or nursing and are all experienced in working with older people, children or those with special needs.

Transport for wheelchairs and special needs clients

There are now five vehicles in the Driving Miss Daisy BOP fleet, all based in Tauranga but covering the western Bay of Plenty from Katikati to Te Puke.

We have vehicles with sliding doors and swing out front seats which make getting in and out of the car much easier for those with reduced mobility. We also have purpose built vehicles with wheelchair access. All our vehicles are clean, comfortable and well maintained, perfect for long or short trips.
