Community Transport schemes are set up to serve people who do
not have access to conventional transport or are unable to use
Community Transport Options
Community Bus Services - Minibuses operated by volunteers and
paid drivers serve regular routes to published timetables. They are
available to all members of the general public. They also
operate a variety of other journeys to address local needs.
Door to Door (often referred to as
Dial-a-Ride) - Needs to be pre-booked by individuals who
become members of the organisation providing the transport. The
service provides individual members with door to door transport
either using minibuses or cars (see Community Car Schemes) and
can be used for a number of trip purposes.
Minibus Group Travel - Vehicles owned by community groups are
made available to other local organisations for low cost hire. Can
be used for a number of different purposes, including leisure,
education and sport.
Community Car Schemes - An organised form of lift giving, where
volunteers use their own cars to provide door to door journeys for
people without transport. Passengers are charged a rate per mile
for their journeys to cover drivers' costs.
