Am I eligible?
A minibus can only be hired for activities by community groups and organisations which are not profit making.
The range of groups who can be members is super-varied – charities and community organisations of all shapes and sizes, sports clubs and teams, faith groups – and churches, mosques and temples of all denominations, groups for interests and hobbies, clubs and societies, schools, colleges and universities (and departments, teams and clubs within those), campaign groups, and volunteering groups. This isn’t an exhaustive list – any group that doesn’t exist to make a profit can join.
What to expect after becoming a member?
Your community group or local organisation can join Community Transport and have access to our fleet of 18 minibuses with most of them being accessible for wheelchair users. Member organisations can book to use our minibuses on a regular basis or for one off trips. Our minibuses can be booked for as little as 1.5 hours or as long as a week or more.
You can provide a driver or we can supply one of ours. We can even train one of your staff or volunteers to be a fully qualified mini-bus driver.

Apply online here if you would like to become a member of Community Transport. You will be required to pay a small annual fee starting from only £6, according to the nature of your organisation. Please check the fee list below. We will then get in touch with you about payment methods.
