Charity information

East Durham Community Transport (Ltd)

We provide affordable and accessible transport for the benefit of the deprived communities of East Durham and the surrounding areas. We have an ever increasing membership which currently stands at 178 community and voluntary groups and we will exceed 40,000 passenger journeys in 2007.

We may not be one of the "sexier" charities, but without us many charities and community projects would not be able to access key services, activities, opportunity and social inclusion. We operate a fleet of 10 minibuses including vehicles specially adapted to carry wheelchairs and other mobility aids and the rurality plus low car ownership (as low as 50% in some villages) means that our servics are vitally important to local people.
