About Community Transport (Amber Valley)

Amber Valley Community Transport is now working together with Chesterfield Community Transport under the name CT4TC, Community Transport for Town and County. They provide essential transport for people with disabilities, elderly people and community groups. Amber Valley Community Transport is a registered charity based in Ripley, providing essential transport for people with disabilities, elderly people and community groups. We have a team of staff and volunteers who are committed to providing transport for everyone who cannot easily use public transport. We have 18 buses plus a single wheelchair vehicle. We also operate a Community Car Scheme, where our volunteers use their own cars to provide transport.

Additional information from provider

We provide transport for group activities either regularly or as a 'one-off' outings. Users may include social groups, scouts, sports clubs, church groups, schools and the W.I. Affiliation is required. The bus also picks up passengers from home and takes them to town for shopping, meeting friends, family or visiting the library. Fares are in line with concessionary rates. Gold Cards are welcome. Our timetable is available to download at http://www.derbyshirect.co.uk/find_a_service/amber_valley/shopping_buses/default.asp aCTive travel is for people who have difficulty using public transport either because they have restricted mobility or where their transport needs cannot be met by the existing transport network. Priority will be given to people with health appointments which can include visits to clinics, dentists, opticians and health visits but other destinations will be considered, for example, hairdressing appointments and visiting friends and family. The service will be delivered by volunteers using their own cars or the Community Transport accessible vehicle when necessary for wheelchair users. Our volunteers may offer additional support by sitting with you whilst waiting for an appointment. Please contact provider for further details on costs.
