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.
