FordHealthcare workers on the frontline of the battle to contain COVID-19 have been given complimentary access to the Ford 2nd Car program.

The workers can reserve a vehicle through the program at any participating Ford dealership to ensure they have safe, private transport for essential travel.

“We’re grateful to every single person working in hospitals, clinics and facilities across Australia who are risking their own safety for the benefit of the wider community,” said Kay Hart, President and CEO, Ford Australia and New Zealand.

“We believe that they need every ounce of moral and practical support possible, and we hope that by offering Ford 2nd Car at no charge we can give them one less thing to worry about, making it easy for them to get to and from work so that they can focus on far more important things – like treating patients and halting the spread of COVID-19.”

With disruptions to services, transport and life in general, frontline healthcare workers, including nurses, aides, laboratory technicians, doctors, paramedics and ambulance officers, are eligible to access a vehicle from the Ford 2nd Car fleet for up to four weeks.

The usual $500 enrolment cost will be waived for all frontline healthcare workers. There is no requirement for any healthcare worker participating in the program to be a Ford customer.

Frontline healthcare workers wishing to borrow a car through the Ford 2nd Car initiative can find out more at, or contact their local participating Ford dealership. In only a few minutes email or by phone, the dealer will create a Ford 2nd Car profile for them, and arrange a convenient time to collect the vehicle from the dealership.

The Ford 2nd Car program is normally available to buyers of new and demonstrator vehicles, which allows access to an additional Ford vehicle for two weeks through a paid subscription.
