Keeping our Community moving

We provide mobility accessible, inclusive transport services for people living in Ipswich and Mid Suffolk who, for whatever reason are not able to access or use mainstream transport. This includes providing transport links to transport connections.

Connecting Communities

Part of the countywide service operated by Suffolk County Council, we are the local operator for Ipswich & Mid Suffolk areas.

The service is available from 7am – 7pm Monday – Saturday and offers affordable transport solutions for people, door to door.

Community Cars

This is a volunteer-led transport which provides door-to-door transport, one to one (or in a family group) to get you to where you need to be. All of our volunteers have enhanced DBS and are dementia and first aid aware.

The Stowmarket Rickshaw

Working in partnership with Red Gables, Suffolk County Council, Mid Suffolk District Council, Stowmarket Dementia Action Alliance & The Mix, our tri-shaw is available to book free of charge for individuals and community visits.
