Billingshurst Community Transport Scheme 

Billingshurst Community Transport is a transport scheme available for the elderly, disabled and frail residents of Billingshurst, Ifold, Kirdford, Plaistow, Loxwood and Shipley.

This service enables registered passengers to undertake trips to medical appointments, day centre’s, shops, leisure and other non-urgent appointments. The journeys are carried out by our group of dedicated volunteer drivers and at present we provide support for over 500 passengers. This gives them the freedom to attend various appointments and places which they may have difficulty accessing. The scheme has a wheelchair accessible vehicle, which makes transferring to and from the vehicle easier for our less mobile clients.

In order to benefit from this community service you will need to register. To do so, simply phone 01403 787696 between the hours of 9.30am - 11.00am Monday to Friday. We ask for a small yearly subscription of £5.00 and our fares are set from each village to each destination. Local journeys of up to 5 miles are set at £4.00. For medical appointments you are able to take a companion who is able to travel free of charge.

Billingshurst Community Transport is always looking for volunteer drivers. If you would like to give something back to the local community and have time available, the scheme’s coordinator would like to hear from you. Simply, phone 01403 787696 and the team will explain what is involved in being a volunteer and how the scheme works overall.

Billingshurst Community Transport team look forward to hearing from you. They are based locally at the Billingshurst Community & Conference Centre in Roman Way.

Community Mini-Bus

The Community Minibus Association (West Sussex) is a registered charity for the community, run entirely by unpaid volunteers. The charity has been helping people get out and about in rural West Sussex for more than 40 years.

Minibuses take people from their homes to shopping centres, lunch clubs, seaside locations, and organised social events, as well as special excursions.

Regular trips can help people get out of the house for a while, to see the countryside, to converse with old friends and to make new ones.

All age groups across all the communities in the region are welcome.

The registered Charity number is 275787
