Community transport schemes in rural areas

In rural areas, where scheduled public services are insufficient to gain credits via the calculation of the Accessibility Index, community transport schemes, including ‘on-demand services’, can be used to achieve the ‘dedicated bus service’ option. In such cases evidence must be provided to demonstrate:

  • It serves a rural area
  • It is available to all potential users
  • The service is established at the time of the assessment being submitted
  • The service is of an appropriate scale for the community it serves
