The service is designed to help people with unmet transport needs in rural areas. In particular residents or groups of people who have difficulties accessing employment, services or facilities due to lack of transport provision.
The service will aim to help residents with transport needs to identify and use existing bus networks, where these may be appropriate. It will also assist communities who want to actively assess and evidence local demand for improved bus or Community Transport services, through local travel surveys, etc.
The service will put residents with unmet transport needs in touch with Community Transport providers who may be able to assist them. By understanding the needs and looking at possible service amendments or enhancements it may be possible to find a solution that is feasible and affordable for both parties.
A range of options may be available, depending on the circumstances involved. Community Transport Operators now cover all of the East Riding, providing both individual and group transport options. A Car Sharing scheme and a ‘Wheels to Work’ moped loan scheme also operate across the area.
With help communities can identify the actual issue and implement a workable solution that best fits their community. The East Riding of Yorkshire Parish Toolkit can show communities how they could tackle a transport issue in their community in a straightforward and practical way.
If you feel your community, organisation or group might have an unmet transport need in your parish and you would like some help to define the issue and look at realistic solutions then the Toolkit might be able to help:

It will not deal with queries or complaints about the frequency or standards of existing commercial or supported bus services. Queries of this nature should be directed to the bus operator or to the council’s Passenger Transportation Unit.
The East Riding of Yorkshire Community Transport Strategy has been designed to help the many rural communities and individuals who do not have a private car or live in an area with appropriate public transport to attend essential services and social activities that they would otherwise find difficult to access.
