Newton Abbot Community Transport Association is a local charity that has been providing accessible, affordable transport and services for our local community, supporting increased mobility, social contact and independence since 1991. We’re based in the heart of Newton Abbot, close to car parks and public buses.
Volunteer driven Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles and Community Cars support local people needing additional help with transport around the area to doctors, dentists, hospitals, exercise classes and similar appointments. Volunteer drivers will pick up from the nearest safe point to passengers’ homes and, upon request, provide assistance to and into the vehicle. Drivers will offer help to the appointment venue and the same on the return journey.
Newton Abbot Community Transport receives a limited amount of local authority grants so is constantly fund-raising and seeking sponsorship in order to continue to provide essential services for local people.
