Community transport is for the many people, especially in rural Devon, that may live miles from the nearest bus route, or are unable to afford taxi fares or are physically unable to use the public transport services provided.
The County-wide community transport groups provide transport to shops, health appointments, services and leisure activities where no transport or no suitable transport is available.
Transport for Your Community (TfYC) is an umbrella organisation, which represents and provides support to a range of community transport providers, primarily across Devon. Our key objective is to promote and improve access to these services as well as reduce outgoings and develop sustainability within our member organisations in order to ensure that community transport remains with local operators who understand the needs of the local community.
For these community transport providers to be able to continue to deliver their invaluable service to often older, isolated or disabled people across rural Devon, TFYC is there to invest their profits, time and advice into providing direct support.
Provides manual and powered wheelchairs and scooters to people with limited mobility (temporary or permanent) so they can shop and use town centre facilities.
A bus service that provides regular, local bus journeys to a published timetable.
A local car service where volunteer car drivers use their own vehicle to provide transport.
