Community Transport Grant Scheme - 2020-2021- Now Closed 

The purpose of the Community Transport Grant Scheme is to assist constituted community groups and trusts, with the objective of delivering transport services to improve connectivity and reduce isolation where or when there are no conventional public transport services available.

It is not the intention of the grant scheme to fund community transport projects in their entirety.  There are limited funds available during financial year 2020/21, therefore Community Groups and Trusts are expected to raise part of the cost of running their scheme themselves.

Examples of such schemes could include, but are not limited to:

  • A dial-a-ride service.
  • Community taxi scheme.
  • Community bus or ferry services.

Applications are assessed according to the award criteria stated within the application form.

Application forms and further information on funding may be obtained by contacting the Transportation Service direct, either by email or by telephone on 01856873535.

Closing date for applications

12:00 (noon) Friday 31 March 2020.
