Community Bus Services
Community Bus Services in Worcestershire are run by
not-for-profit operators using paid or voluntary drivers and can
operate in two ways:
- Under a Section 19 permit serving a community or communities
with a route running to an approximate timetable. Journeys
always need to be pre-booked with the operator who will confirm
pick-up and return times. Worcestershire Concessionary Bus pass
holders are entitled to a reduced fare.
- Under a Section 22 permit operating to a fixed timetable
and running as a registered local bus service. These do not need to
be pre-booked and can stop at existing bus stops. National
Concessionary Bus passes are accepted on such services.
There are numerous Community Bus services in the county and
these can be found on our Bus Timetables page under the prefix 'CB' for
services needing to be pre-booked and listed under regular bus
services for registered routes.
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
