What is Community Transport?
Community Transport Schemes can offer transport for individuals as well as group hire. Some also offer door-to-door services. Community Transport is provided by a number of independent charitable, non-profit-making groups, companies and organisations.
Who can use it?
Community Transport is there to serve those who don’t have access to public transport and are without access to suitable alternative transport.
These services can be used for a variety of reasons, including health appointments, shopping, commuting to and from work, social events, evening classes and for making links with other public transport. Each service operates differently and covers different areas, so please check with the individual operators in your area.
How do I use it?
To use Community Transport services you must first register with the operator. Once you are registered with the scheme, you can make your booking. Journeys are usually booked with at least 24 hours notice, and operators can generally be flexible pick up and drop off points and times. Regular bookings can be made with some providers.
How much does it cost?
Fares vary, so please contact the individual operator to find out more. Concessionary fares may be available to Somerset residents who are English National Concessionary Travel Scheme Pass holders. For more information please contact the individual operator.
