Community Transport Association celebrates Community Transport Week 2023

From 16 to 21 October, the Community Transport Association (CTA) is celebrating the vital role and inspiring work of Community Transport in helping millions of people to stay independent, participate in their communities and access essential public services and employment.

This year’s Community Transport Week themed Bridging the Gap; Connecting Communities will celebrate how accessible, inclusive and affordable transport is fostering stronger and more connected communities.

According to CTA: “Community Transport has been delivering supported transport for over 57 years in the UK for older people, young people, minority groups, people living with disabilities and anyone who cannot afford public transport.

“It’s more than just moving people from point A to point B. It’s about fostering a sense of belonging, bridging divides, and empowering individuals to access education, employment, healthcare, and social opportunities that are the bedrock of a thriving community.”
