Doing well is the result of doing good work.

Community transport provides transport services for people living in Blaby District and Oadby & Wigston who have difficulty using or have no access to public transport. This service is supported by Leicestershire County Council.

Our Aim

Community transport aims to support people who:

  • are geographically isolated
  • are frail or elderly
  • have a physical or learning disability
  • have mobility difficulties
  • have mental ill health
  • have difficulty in using public transport and no access to any alternatives
  • are a non-profit making community organisations, charities, or voluntary groups

Social car scheme

Our volunteer drivers use their own cars to transport people to and from destinations that often include shopping trips, lunch clubs, visits to friends, health appointments, doctors, dentists, podiatry and much more. Our social car scheme cannot provide transport for hospital appointments.

There is a charge based on distance travelled. Our community transport staff can give you information about the cost of specific journeys by contacting the details below.

Minibus hire

Community Action Partnership has a 15 seats and a 10 seats minibus available to hire to community groups and organisations at very competitive rates. We can sometimes provide a volunteer driver. Conditions apply if you are planning to drive the bus yourself.

Contact Mick@communityap.org.uk or muriel@communityap.org.uk for further information.

Shopping trips

Our minibus provides shopping trips within certain areas. Passengers are collected from their homes and each minibus has a passenger lift for easy access for wheelchair users or people with walking difficulties.

There is a charge for this service.

Social outings
