Community Transport Schemes

Volunteer-led Community Transport Schemes

Community transport schemes offer lifts for essential appointments to those who are unable to access other options such as public transport. These schemes are volunteer-led and run throughout Buckinghamshire.

If you are part of a community transport scheme, or are looking to set a new scheme up, we offer a range of advice and support.

Support offered to Community Transport Schemes

If you are interested in setting up a new community transport scheme to service your area, we can provide some free support to get you up and running. Funded by Buckinghamshire Council, we offer this service to a limited number of communities each year.

We also offer bespoke support and advice to community transport schemes which are already running or new schemes which would like tailored advice. For example:

  • Developing needs assessments and online surveys
  • Running information events
  • Provision of exemplar policies, constitutions, role descriptions, induction packs
  • Support with volunteer recruitment
  • Marketing needs assessments
  • Processing of DBS applications and document verification service
  • Specialist 1-to-1 advice sessions

If you would like more information on this service, please contact Nosh Fiaz: 01844 617300,

Could you be a volunteer driver?

Many community transport schemes are volunteer-led and are in need of more people to volunteer their time to take local residents to medical appointments and social activities. This could range from multiple times a week to once a week depending on the scheme and your preferences.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer driver, please contact Nosh Fiaz (tel 01844 617300 or with your name, location, and contact details.

Buckinghamshire Community Transport Forum

The Buckinghamshire Community Transport Forum is an opportunity for local community transport schemes to network, discuss community transport issues, and gain a better understanding of topics such as funding or volunteer recruitment.

Join us on Wednesday June 26th (1.30-3pm) where we will be discussing funding for community transport schemes, and networking to share ideas and concerns. For more information and to book, visit our Training and Workshops page.

The Forums take place once every quarter. To be notified of the next Forum, please contact to sign up to the Buckinghamshire Community Transport newsletter.
