Community transport

Help for people unable to use public transport.

Door to Door in the Bedford area and Greensand Country Community Transport across much of Central Bedfordshire provide wheelchair accessible minibuses for people who find it hard to use public transport.

We provide a safe, accessible service for those who are unable to use ordinary public transport due to disability, either temporary or permanent.

Professional and friendly

Vehicles used are constructed for ease of access, even if a wheelchair is required.

All vehicles are fitted with a tail lift and staff can escort you to or from your door if needed.

The staff and volunteers aim to provide at all times a reliable, personal and friendly service, allowing added freedom and independence.
