Community transport operates across the county providing a variety of services to meet every need and all vehicles are wheelchair accessible.
It enables people who are unable to use public transport to get out and about and make journeys most people take for granted.
All services are pre-bookable.
It also provides transport for groups who wish to enhance community activities.
The services provided include:
A 'door to town' shopping bus service, for individuals whoexperience difficulties with using public transport or where there is no public transport available.
Fares are in line with public transport rates and there is a flat-rate fare of £1 per journey (£2 return) for Gold Card holders.
This is a service available to community groups involved with community activities, such as scouts, schools, luncheon clubs and church groups.
Trips and excursions
Some of the community transport schemes in Derbyshire run trips and excursions throughout the year to places of interest, such as garden centres, Christmas lights and larger towns, either within the county or further afield.
This is a door-to-door service catering for individual needs and is primarily for getting to health appointments and improving people's quality of life by assisting them to get to places they wouldn't otherwise be able to access.
Either a small, wheelchair accessible vehicle, or a volunteer using their own car, will be used depending on a passengers mobility.
This year (2012-2013) each of Derbyshire's seven community transport schemes will get a share of a £1.491 million grant from the county council to help with day-to-day running costs.
And there is another cash boost in the pipeline following a £446,582 grant for community transport from the Department of Transport.
