Transport Self-help Kit: Providing transport services to your community
This Self-help Kit is designed to help organisations to design, commission and provide transport services which meet the needs of their local community.
Parish Councils, Town Councils, voluntary and community organisations are well placed, because of their key role within their local community, to identify who needs transport and to use this kit to choose appropriate transport solutions.
This section gives guidance on how to gather information on transport currently operating in your area, identify areas where there is no transport and how to consult your community on what they need.
In this section we look at how you can set up a range of different transport options including car schemes or minibus services.
Once you have established transport needs, designing, marketing, funding, procurement and legal arrangements need to be considered.
