* Whenever you buy anything online - from your weekly shop to your annual holiday - you could be collecting free donations for Chelmsford Community Transport. Go to EasyFundraising, sign up and shop as normal through a link on their website. We get a donation for each purchase and it costs you nothing.
COMMUNITY / HOSPITAL TRANSPORT
(also known as dial-a-ride and community car scheme)
We provide door-to-door transport by car or minibus for those who are unable to use public transport because of physical or mental disability, or rural exclusion. We have a team of volunteers who drive their own cars, plus several minibuses equipped with wheelchair lifts.
Journeys can be for any reason - hospital appointment, day centre, shopping, personal. All journeys must be within Chelmsford and neighbouring boroughs and start or finish within Chelmsford City Council's boundaries.
You must book your journey at least 2 days in advance.
Whenever possible, please be flexible in your timing as we need to schedule our vehicles efficiently to meet demand. You should expect to share a vehicle and it may divert to collect other passengers on the way to your destination.
We provide a regular bus service - the Danbury Flyer - every Monday and Friday morning around Danbury and Little Baddow. For details, go to the 'Danbury Flyer' page.
GROUP TRANSPORT HIRE
Subject to availability, a voluntary or community group may hire one of our minibuses with or without a driver. For details, see the 'Bus hire' page.
We organise fund-raising events and outings for our customers several times a year. See the 'Events' page.
We are always in need of volunteer minibus and car drivers, and also event and administrative staff.
