About Community Transport

Our Community Transport scheme improves access to services, activities and facilities in both Colchester, Maldon and surrounding villages, for people with limited mobility (be it through permanent or temporary disablement, illness, accident or age).  By doing so, the scheme also tackles isolation and boosts independence.  Lack of accessible transport can be a barrier to disabled and elderly people accessing GP surgeries and other social and welfare facilities.
