Community transport

Community Action Bradford & District has four minibuses available to hire 7 days a week for one-off or regular bookings.  Community groups and other not-for-private-profit organisations (e.g. NHS) can use this service. We currently have 36 local groups and organisations affiliated to our community transport service which enables them to hire our minibuses for social trips and events.

We are unable to take bookings for private outings (e.g. weddings or private parties) because of the terms of our community transport license.

Drivers

Groups and organisations are able to use their own drivers.  A valid UK driver’s license will need to be checked and for insurance reasons drivers have be aged 21 to 69 and have been driving for a minimum of 2 years.  If you can’t provide a driver, Community Action has a pool of 13 volunteer drivers, who continue to give freely of their time – please ask for details when you book.

Volunteering

Volunteers drivers and passenger assistants are required for regular and adhoc bookings. You would be helping local community groups to run activities and events by providing the transport to get people there. It’s a rewarding role that’s really needed in the local community. Telephone Debbie or Steve on 01274 781222 for a chat about how to volunteer.

Enquiries and booking

Telephone Steve Spencer on 01274 781222 or email steves@cabad.org.uk. The Community Action Bingley office is open from 9am to 4.30pm Monday to Thursday.
