Community transport reminder


Ipswich residents are being reminded about community transport services in the town run by Suffolk charity BSEVC. 
 
Connecting Communities can help people get from a to b for health appointments, shopping, visiting relatives and friends and to connect you to bus and train services. 
 
Funded by both Suffolk County Council and Ipswich Borough Council the service operates Monday to Saturday and is aimed at providing transport to people who struggle to access other transport due to their mobility difficulties, disabilities or if there is no bus service where they live. 
 
BSEVC Manager David Finn said: “We have a fully accessible vehicle available for any residents of Ipswich to use. It’s a very busy service but we do have some room for additional passengers and we want as many people as possible to benefit. You can book up to two weeks in advance, or longer if it’s for a health appointment, so give us a call to find out more.” 
 
Fares are only £2.20 per single journey up to 5 miles and £3 for over 5 miles, journeys are typically within Ipswich but the service also covers the Kesgrave area. 
 
The service is run by a small dedicated team of volunteer drivers and BSEVC is also looking for a few more to help ensure as many people as possible can use the service. If you have a few spare hours each month and love driving or helping people this is a role for you. Please contact BSEVC to find out more. 
 
For further information or to make a booking please call 01449 614271.
