New Bus

Badenoch & Strathspey Community Transport Company now has delivery of their new “Where 2 Today?” 14-seat accessible minibus. For the last 5 years, the charity has been raising funds towards this new larger bus which will operate throughout the Strath. The Charity identified there was a need for more demand responsive transport to enable people to go to Day Care, shopping, health center appointments and to visit friends. Currently they operate a community car scheme with volunteers using their own cars, but this new vehicle will open up opportunities for people to get to destinations with their friends. It will operate under a Section 22 licence which will mean that people who hold a travel concession card will travel free. Bookings will be made in advance through a central telephone number.

The vehicle can take up to 2 wheelchairs and has 14 passenger seats, it also has an internal wheelchair lift in the rear of the vehicle which can also assist walking passengers who may have difficulty using steps.

Evenings and weekends will be allocated for group hire and enquiries for this can be made either by telephoning Aviemore (01479) 810004 or emailing info@ct4u.co.uk. Further information on the Charity can be found on the website at www.ct4u.co.uk.
