This is the name given to a range of Community based solutions, normally using volunteers, that provide transport to the local community who are unable to access or use existing public or private transport and is a broad title covering a number of different types of schemes. Through Community Transport members of the public can access different services they would otherwise be unable to access.
Each project is owned and operated by local Community Groups or charities, and are provided on a not-for-profit basis. Without the dedicated team of volunteers working on these schemes from Car drivers to Shopmobility workers, these schemes would not be able to function.
These schemes include:
Each Scheme will have different operation criteria, with some specifically covering health related journeys or focusing on a certain geographical area.
