Volunteering in community transport is a great way to meet new people, help others or add to your CV. Community transport providers are always on the lookout for new volunteers, particularly volunteer drivers. If the idea appeals to you then simply contact your local community transport provider to find out how you could help! You can find contact details here.
When we asked people who use community transport what they liked about the service, their top three reasons were:
- The service was very reliable.
- The personal nature / friendliness of the service provided.
- The affordable cost.
Individual operators set their own fares to help towards the cost of providing the service. Call your local operator for further details of the fares they charge.
Most operators need to know ahead of time to ensure volunteer and vehicle availability. Please give as much notice as you can.
