Traveling by Community Transport
Community Transport services help people and groups who don’t have access to their own transport and who don’t have or can’t use conventional public transport services. Community Transport activity can range from providing accessible door to door transport for people with mobility problems, to helping the social inclusion of a wide range of people who otherwise would not be able to participate in the normal activities of everyday life, education and training, employment. In rural areas it can lessen the effects of geographical isolation by giving better access to local and regional centres. On the Powys Association of Voluntary Organisations website you will find information about the community transport services available in Powys.
