Transport for the general public and people using our services

Smarter Travel bus

Smarter Travel also covers how we provide transport for people using our services and wider public transport issues. These services need to be cost effective and provided for those most in need.


This includes:

  • minibuses for transport to adult day care centres and access to services for young people
  • Gold Card and b_line
  • the use of taxis − currently costing us £12m a year - to get children and young people to education and care visits
  • home to school transport
  • the supported bus network and community transport.

The Passenger Transport Safety Guidelines for Passengers with Additional Needs document found below is aimed at Derbyshire County Council drivers and passenger assistants to ensure they safely transport passengers with additional needs.
