Welcome to Basingstoke Community transport, established in 1984.
For older people that don’t have a car, have poor mobility, and find it difficult to use public transport or that live in rural areas with poor transport links, it can be difficult to get out and about. This can lead to feelings of isolation, loneliness and a lack of independence. Basingstoke Community Transport provides community transport to the community of Basingstoke and the surrounding areas. We run a fleet of fully wheelchair accessible minibuses. All with 16 seats without wheelchairs and all seats have seat belts provided and have transported more than 1.75 million passengers.
FUNDING FOR ESSENTIAL MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS.
We have just been awarded a small grant to help towards the cost of essential medical appointments between now and the end of November, for those who find it hard to meet the cost of transport. So, if you feel this maybe something you could benefit from or you would like to find out more please contact us on 01256 320501 or use our contact form and we will get back to you

We provide minibus hire for voluntary and community groups. In this instance the vehicle can be hired and the group provides its own driver, however the organisation they driver for must provide their own PERMIT 19 and display it on the front window of the bus. This is commonly when groups want to go on longer day trips or weekly excursions. If a group hires a bus and wants to use their own driver then that driver MUST be MiDAS trained (see below). For guaranteed hire at the times you want book early.
