Do you live in PL12 feel isolated, struggle to get out and about on public buses?  We provide a number of prearranged trips to help those in the community increase their freindship circles and enjoy themselves at the same time.

Would your local group or club enjoy day trips but can’t find affordable transport?

Have you thought about asking our community transport service for help?

We currently have 3 Hopper Buses two 16 seater and one 15 seater minibuses which can carry up to 6 wheelchairs (with a reduced number of seats). Driven and managed by volunteers, we enable organisations and individuals to go on one-off or regular trips locally or further afield.

The Hoppers provide affordable community transport and anyone living in the PL12 area who is a member of Community Enterprises PL12 can use the service.

We have regularly scheduled trips to places of interest and the hoppers are available for group hire should you wish to organise your own outings for family or friends.

Please register your interest with an email to, call us telephone 01752 848348 or call in to 4 Fore Street to discuss your trip and book. The Hub and phone will be available 10am – 2pm most days except Sunday.

Or you could drive for us and help those less mobile to enjoy everything our county has to offer and beyond.  Click here to see more !
