Kingswood Community Transport is a charity that provides demand-responsive transport for the residents of South Gloucestershire. We play an active part in the community and provide a flexible form of travel which meets the needs of the residents of the area. The services we provide are tailored to our customer needs and we provide accessible vehicles for people who cannot easily use public transport or who are transport-disadvantaged.
We provide the following services
Dial-&-Ride: Enables people to visit friends and family and continue to lead an active social life. Run regular trips to all the major shopping centres.
Doctors Shuttle: Provide return trips to Southmead and the Central Bristol Hospitals, Cossham, as well as the many doctors surgeries and dentists within the area, enabling you to keep your appointments;
Group Hire: We offer transport for all groups within the community - Youth groups, Lunch clubs, Friday Friends Group and many more use this service. We can provide you with a driver or you can use our vehicles with your own drivers, just as long as they are MiDAS accredited (see below). We are keen to extend our offer and engage with groups serving the youth community;
MiDAS Driver Training: The Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme, a programme which your organisation can join, has been developed to enhance the driving and passenger awareness skill of the many thousands of individuals who drive minibuses in the course of their work or as volunteers.
Our membership fee and annual renewal is set at £22.50 (£20 each, if a couple at the same address). However, we ask you to consider making a donation to Kingswood Community Transport at the time of your renewal. The renewal letters go out in the last two weeks of March each year. The reason for this is that we are a charity and rely on charitable donations to be able to continue delivering our service to you and the wider community. We believe that supporting Kingswood Community Transport in this way is extremely good value for money. If you pay income tax you can also gift aid your membership and donation and this will provide 25% more to KCT.
