Peterborough City Council - Client transport service PE1

Location: UK » East of England » PE
Sector: Social care

Issue: Client transport service

We run a number of buses that provide transport for people with disabilities to get to and from day care and other activities. These vehicles are coming to the end of their life and this gives us a chance to see if we can improve the way we deliver this service.

We propose to reduce the number of buses and provide a number of ‘people carrier’ type vehicles in their place. In many cases we find that buses aren’t the most appropriate transport for people and they are expensive to run.

We will also be encouraging people, who are able, to make more use of public transport by using their mobility allowances to meet their travel costs.
