Community and Accessible Transport
The Sustainable Travel Group provides accessible public transport services for people who, becuase of age, disability or rural isolation, cannot use conventional bus services or have serious problems doing so. They are provided for individuals to help them live as independly as possible.
These services are provided mainly in partnership with voluntary sector providers and consist of social car schemes and community bus services. They are run under service agreements with the County Council.
Social car schemes involve volunteers using their own cars to provide door to door transport. Community bus services use wheelchair accessible minibuses to provide travel from home to common destinations such as town or shopping centres. Fares are charged for the services. Leicestershire County Council's Concessionary Travel Scheme is available on most of these services.
