Transportation

Your group may require transportation on their day out.  Below are a few companies that offer transport for people with limited mobility and also large groups. 

Community Transport Northern Ireland

This company represents a wide variety of operators who provide accessible door-to-door and group travel services to community groups, older people and people with disabilities on a non-profit making basis throughout the province. 

A community transport operator can be located in most parts of the country, in both urban and rural areas.  

Group Transport

Community transport provides accessible transport solutions for community groups and associations and other charities. Transport is provided in minibuses ranging from 9 passenger to 16 passenger seats.   You can either hire a minibus with a driver or provide your own volunteer who can drive on your behalf. Please note: all drivers must be registered with your local community transport provider and have completed training such as MIDAS (Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme) before they can take a bus out.  The majority of minibuses are fully accessible. 

Only member groups can make use of the minibuses. Becoming a member is easy; contact your local community transport operator for a membership application form and terms and conditions.
