‘TRANSPORT for Your Community’ is co-ordinating its first Community Transport Awareness Week across Devon from Monday, June 9 to Sunday, June 15.

The organisation, which is made up of Community Transport group members across Devon, provides transport to health appointments, services, shops and leisure activities where no transport or no suitable transport is available.

During the Awareness Week, the Transport for Your Community roadshow will be visiting Tiverton and Honiton – as well as Barnstaple, Newton Abbot, Ivybridge and Okehampton, where each local Community Transport group will be showcasing the services they provide in their area.

Councillor Stuart Hughes, Devon County Council Cabinet Member for Highway Management, said: “Community Transport is for the many people, especially in rural Devon, that may live miles from the nearest bus route, or are unable to afford taxi fares or are physically unable to use public transport.

“The roadshow during awareness week is an opportunity for people to find out more about community transport and realise what is available to them.”
