Charity information

ATWEST Accessible Transport West Somerset Ltd.

Accessible Transport West Somerset Limited (ATWEST) is a non-profit making charitable company limited by guarantee which seeks to provide accessible transport for the disabled, the elderly and rurally isolated persons of the West Somerset area. We work to complement and enhance existing public transport services through conventional bus routes by providing accessible vehicles from the customer's home to their destination. ATWEST works closely with Transporting Somerset at Somerset County Council.

The Company aspires to provide accessible transport to all eligible persons within the West Somerset Community. There are two categories of passenger for whom this should apply. Some people are unable to reach a bus stop or may have a very infrequent bus service. Others may, through physical or mental limitations, be unable to use a normal service bus. The vision of the Company is to enable all these persons of whatever age to reach medical services, work, education, sports facilities, social welfare and social events. We believe that this will promote the sustainability and balance of our rural environment, and it will address adverse statistics of ill health, loneliness, depression and isolation.
