Ceredigion Association of Voluntary Organisations

Community Transport

Community Transport (CT) meets the transport needs of the communities in Ceredigion where these needs are not or cannot be adequately met by public and/or commercial transport.

CT 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, including education, training and employment. In both rural and urban areas CT can lessen the effects of geographical isolation by giving better access to local services and regional centres.

CT is an essential part of an integrated transport system feeding into and out from the main public transport corridors and interchanges. Ceredigion is fortunate to have several successful CT schemes in operation. The majority have developed to meet the needs of a wide range of groups.
