We have produced the Community Transport Toolkit and Slimline Toolkit to help rural communities develop different transport solutions tailored to the needs of the residents, enabling access to many essential and leisure services. There is already a wide range of community transport schemes in the county, from car-sharing to community minibuses. These guides will help communities to decide which option best suits their needs and to understand how schemes can be implemented.

The Volunteer Car Schemes Good Practice is also available for anyone looking to set up a volunteer car scheme.
