Welcome to the Community Transport Association UK
The CTA is a national membership association which leads and supports community transport to be successful and sustainable in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
It provides leadership by promoting community transport and influencing the development of better strategy, policy, regulations and investment at all levels of government.
It provides support by advocating high standards of practice and providing advice, information, training and hands-on support that helps operators work to these standards.
Community transport enables people to live independently, participate in their community and to access education, employment, health and other services. It uses and adapts conventional vehicles to do exceptional things – always for a social purpose and community benefit, but never for a profit.
Using everything from mopeds to minibuses, typical services include voluntary car schemes, community bus services, school transport, hospital transport, dial-a-ride, wheels to work and group hire services. Community transport is responsive, accessible and flexible.
