Community Transport Information

Community Transport Service in East Sussex

What does it do?

Community transport provides services in areas where either there is no public transport or existing public transport cannot be used, for example because of limited wheelchair access.
Community transport is non-profit and is developed by local people to serve their needs. Services may be provided by different vehicles, depending on needs of the community. Most do not run to a timetable, but respond to requests when they are made.
There are currently more than 40 community transport schemes operating in East Sussex. Typical destinations include hospitals and doctors surgeries, shopping centres, workplaces and places of entertainment.

Who it is for?

Community transport can be used by everyone in the community.

Where it is available?

Local service (Eastbourne, Hastings, Lewes, Wealden, Rother).

What it costs:

The website provides free information.
Each transport operator sets their own fares. These are usually based on distance and whether a single or return journey is required.
Some operators may accept Concessionary Travel passes, but you should always check with them before your journey.

Additional information:

Community transport relies on local volunteers to help with bookings, fundraising and driving. A few hours of your time could make a difference to your community. Contact your local operator for more information.
