PHONE THEM – FIND OUT HOW THEY CAN HELP YOU IF IT IS DIFFICULT TO ACCESS TRANSPORT FOR YOUR RELATIVE!
Community transport is the term given to passenger transport schemes that are outside the usual travel options.
These schemes help people who are rurally isolated or not easily able to access conventional public transport or with restricted mobility.
Community transport schemes in Essex (and Thurrock) offer a wide range of transport services, such as social car, dial a ride, group travel and more.
The schemes are independent of Essex County Council. They often run as charities and receive some funding. They are usually operated by people working together to solve their own transport needs and mostly rely on volunteers to help.
