There is a range of community transport services and shopmobility available across the West of England region. These provide residents of all ages with essential transport within the community and are particularly well placed to cater for passengers with limited mobility.

  • Door-to-door transport

    The scheme provides individuals with transport from their front door to a variety of locations. Individuals register to become members and are then able to request transport from their front door to a place of their choosing. Some schemes also have trips to specific locations available on certain days of the week. Schemes may propose a different time or day of the week if that fits better with delivering of the service to more users. Priority may be given to requests such as medical appointments but all requests are welcomed.

    Voluntary car schemes

    The scheme links individuals with volunteer drivers offering transport. The individual contacts the co-ordinator to request a journey who then contacts volunteer drivers to see if anyone can provide the transport. If so, the driver will then pick up the individual and take them to and from their destination. There is usually a charge per mile for the volunteer driver.

  • Vehicles owned by community groups are made available to other local organisations for low-cost hire. These can be used for a number of different purposes, including leisure, social events and education.

  • Some of the community transport schemes run trips and excursions throughout the year to places of interest either within the area or further afield.

  • The operator may run weekly trips to one or more local places of interest, such as a shopping centre.

  • A place to hire mobility equipment, such as mobility scooters and manual or powered wheelchairs.
