Charnwood Community Transport

Charnwood Community Transport offers a range of transport services to those who find it difficult or impossible to use public transport, through disability, age or location.

Weekly door-to-door services using wheelchair accessible minibuses

Although there is a charge for these services, concessionary passes and vouchers are accepted.

Thursday Service – From Loughborough, Syston, Thurmaston, Queniborough, Sileby, East Goscote, Birstall, Barrow and Quorn to Loughborough Market or John Storer House.

Friday Service - For anyone who would like to use Shopmobility, a scheme for people with limited mobility based in the Town Hall Passage, Loughborough. Collections made from eg Loughborough, Woodhouse Eaves, Birstall, Mountsorrel, Barrow, Sileby, Thrussington and Cropston.

Transport to Clubs - Lunch Clubs are held at John Storer House every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Also every Tuesday and Wednesday, the Charnwood Stroke Club meets at St Peter's Community Centre.

With funding received from Leicestershire County Council and a grant from the Midlands Co-op Community Dividend Award a new 16-seater Iveco Iris wheelchair accessible minibus was launched in June 2009.

Voluntary and Community Groups

Groups organising their own outings can use our minibuses with either our paid or volunteer drivers, for one off or regular trips, for example to Ulverscroft Grange and for the canal trips.

We train and assess all volunteer drivers using the Minibus Drivers Awareness Scheme, MiDAS, a nationally recognised standard.

The support network that has been achieved as a result of regular contact between passenger and driver is invaluable, as is the time and care taken by the driver when older and disabled people use our services. The drivers are often the first person the passenger meets in a morning. Each passenger is greeted with respect, patience and understanding as the drivers are fully aware of their individual needs and routines which enable them to leave their homes confidently.
