The East Suffolk Community Partnership Transport and Travel (ESCPT&T) Task Group has conducted extensive research identifying transport needs and opportunities across East Suffolk. It found that demand responsive Transport (DRT) services could be a solution to rural transport issues and social isolation. Services are currently under-utilised and there is a real opportunity to expand the customer base of community transport.
The Board recently allocated £90,000 to fund a 12 month trial of a new demand responsive transport (DRT) service for residents and visitors in Framlingham, Wickham Market, Campsea Ashe, Snape and surrounding Areas. More information.
The Board also allocated £14,500 to deliver a mobile application (App) for community transport providers to manage demand responsive transport services (DRT) in East Suffolk. More information.
