Community Transport

Community Transport (CT) is the service within our charity that provides transport.

We are able to help those who are disabled or have difficulties getting about and we can provide transport services to charities, youth associations, schools and local community groups. 


Volunteers
Community Transport is always in need of new drivers.
We are a very friendly work team and appreciate any time given to help.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer driver,  then please contact us on the details provided.

Our Drivers
CT trains volunteers to become MiDAS (Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme) certified drivers. 

Drivers need to be in possession of a clean and current driver's license and aged between 25 and 75 years. 

Our Vehicles
We have a variety of minibuses which have a maximum of 15 seats and can accommodate up to 3 wheelchairs, plus a smaller vehicle, which has a maximum of 5 seats and can accommodate one wheelchair.
Note: The seating capacity reduces with the number of wheelchairs carried.

Vehicle Accessibility


All our vehicles are specially adapted with handrails and low steps for those who are less able to get around. They also have a lift or ramp for wheelchair and walking frame users.

Vehicle Use 
CT's vehicles are available for hire every day for the community groups of the local area.  Passengers can travel with walking sticks, trolleys, wheelchairs.  
The bus service is only available to not-for-profit organisations who would be eligible to become members of Community Action Fareham.  There is no membership fee; click here to see details of membership   and here to download a membership form. (it can be filled in on the computer and emailed back)
