Community Transport

Community Transport

Community Transport Schemes can offer individual transport and 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?
Anyone who doesn’t have access to public transport and is 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 when making your booking.

How do I use it?
You need to register by phoning the number of the service you wish to use. Once it is established that you are eligible, you can make your booking. Journeys are usually booked with at least 24 hours notice, and you agree your pick up and drop off points and times. Regular bookings can also 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.
