The community transport sector is vast. There are over 100,000 minibuses serving over 10 million passengers every year being operated for use by voluntary and community groups, schools, colleges and Local Authorities, or to provide door-to-door transport for people who are unable to use other public transport. This door-to-door transport is not limited to minibuses though; there are very many voluntary car schemes throughout the UK where a volunteer will use their own car to provide transport for individuals.
The CTA provides support, advice, information, training and development services to voluntary organisation throughout the UK. We are a membership based organisation who assist non-profit transport operators and other voluntary organisations to use transport as a community development tool. We provide these services to an ever increasing network of over 1,500 organisations via our network of regional offices and advice lines in Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
