Community Transport For All

COMMUNITY TRANSPORT FOR ALL
– NOT JUST FOR THE ELDERLY & DISABLED!
ENJOY CONCESSIONARY TRANSPORT THIS SPRING!


If you need transport because you can’t access the bus or it’ll take too many buses to get where you need to go – we’re here for you! Whether you’re a yummy mummy, a dashing dad or a gorgeous grandparent there’s a transport option for you.

We cover the whole of Chelmsford, including Stock, Danbury and South Woodham Ferrers and supply door-to-door wheelchair/buggy accessible minibuses and volunteer car drivers.

An annual membership fee of £12 for individuals and £15 for couples & families and if you don’t have a bus pass our fare contributions are up to a third cheaper than local taxi firms!



Clair Dade, Development Coordinator explains:

“Now the warmer weather is finally upon us we’re hoping the concessionary bus pass scheme will make it easier for members of the community to stay active. Trips can be for any purpose as long as it’s within Chelmsford parishes.

We’ll also be organising day trips throughout the Spring and Summer around Chelmsford which we’ll be able to accept bus passes on – a great way to enjoy the sunshine and meet new friends at the same time!”

Aiming to overcome loneliness and social barriers in the community, the service is a lifeline to many who would otherwise not be able to travel or struggle to access public transport for whatever reason.

We are supporting the Jo Cox Loneliness Commission this year and will be working very closely with service providers and the general public to see how we can end loneliness in our communities.

Could you become a volunteer mini-bus or car driver? Volunteers work as much as they want weekdays or weekends and are fully trained and reimbursed.

We especially need volunteer drivers to work once every 4 or so months on a Saturday or Sunday to drive on our day trips throughout Chelmsford. We also need passenger assistants to help on our trips too, helping passengers on and off the bus and helping them at their destination.

Helping others in the community can be very rewarding and many volunteers enjoy meeting new people and going on different trips with our members.

We were lucky enough to be invited to the Admiral J McHardy in Springfield 2 weeks ago.. Known amongst fellow Chelmsfordians for many years as the Almer, its new incarnation as the Admiral J McHardy is firstly a name rooted in Chelmsford history.

Captain John McHardy was Chelmsford's first Chief Constable appointed in 1840 and, our landlord tells us, prior to this had an active hand in suppressing the slave trade.
