Chelmsford Community Transport

Chelmsford Community Transport are looking for people who may have some spare time on their hands to help their community, by becoming one of their volunteer drivers. They are also in need of volunteers with experience in driving minibuses for the new hospital transport service. Mileage expenses will be reimbursed. Should this be of interest to you, please call 01245 477750 sand give your details.

They are now running a new bus service to Broomfield Hospital for people who have difficulty in getting to their hospital appointments by public transport. This service enables them to collect from your address and drop you off at the hospital at one of 3 drop off points at the hospital. You may use your concessionary bus pass, should you hold one. This only applies when travelling on our minibuses.

For those with more difficult mobility in walking, they can offer a more personalised service with a volunteer car driver subject to availability, where you can be escorted to and from the department you are attending. Unfortunately this service will be at a comparable cost to yourself. The personalised service is also available subject to availability, to anybody who wishes to go to any other hospitals.  But unfortunately at this time it is also at a comparable cost.

They still have our existing dial a ride operation in place, for those who wish to get out and about the Chelmsford area. Should you have any further enquiries, please contact one of the following numbers for more information.
