Kesgrave has been incorporated into the BSEVC Community Transport Scheme - Please use it
by Alan Comber
The Town Council is delighted that Kesgrave has been incorporated into the BSEVC Community Transport umbrella – a Charity which has been running Community Transport for over 25 years.
Sufficient volunteers have now been recruited for the Kesgrave Community Transport scheme. However, residents now need to take advantage of this service, otherwise it will be lost.
The vehicle used is fully accessible for wheelchair users and transport can be booked up to 2 weeks in advance. The service is designed for those local residents who are unable to access public transport due to mobility difficulties or where public transport does not meet their needs.
The service is available for any age group and operates Monday to Saturday. If you would like to use this service please call 01449 614271, or text 07493 866652, or email email@example.com
The journeys can be for health appointments, visiting relatives and friends, shopping, connection to onward travel by bus, coach or train, to and from day centres and services, funerals, weddings etc.
The driver is paid on the day.

- Child 5-16 years £1.00
