The Forest of Dean Community Transport Partnership is made up of four community transport providers who between them provide coverage across the Forest of Dean. They provide door to door transport, at a reasonable price, for people who may have difficulty using public transport or travelling by car.
There are 3 types of Community Transport in the Forest of Dean
Volunteer car drivers – these are people who use their own cars to take people to and from their appointments. They cover the Forest and surrounding areas and travel as far as is required, for example to Bristol or Birmingham Hospitals. They provide a very personal service and only charge for mileage, not their time.
Dial a Ride services are booked typically 24 hours or more in advance and are used by people who do not have access to their own transport and are unable to use public transport. Most vehicles are able to take wheelchair passengers.
Community Bus Routes operate just like any normal bus service and can be used by anyone. Passengers do not have to be a member of Dial-a-Ride to use it.
