Community Transport for the Lewes Area

What does it do?

The service provides transport to Day Centres.

The Dial-A-Ride services are "door to door", picking the passengers up from home, taking them to their destination (in the area of operation) and doing the return journey, if requested.  The Dial-A-Ride services can be used for shopping trips, doctors  appointments, attendance at lunch clubs, visiting friends etc.

The CTLA Travel Club operates regular weekly trips  to local shopping centres. A "door to door" service operates and we meet the needs of our clients by dropping off as close to a  destination as our minibuses can get.
