Geographical remit: 


Tenbury Transport Trust provides facilities for anyone in the locality who does not have adequate or appropriate transport. There are currently over 500 registered passengers,

The organisation provides a non-profit making car service for which trained volunteers use their own cars. It also operates two minibuses offering pre-booked group transport to local community groups, and provides a number of local services connecting rural villages. We also provide Wheel Chair accessible transport should it be required.

Since 2011 and local authority budget cuts, rural bus services have been decimated resulting in increased demand and increased risk of social/economic exclusion. The value of transport as a preventative measure has been measured as a ROI of 5:1 against downstream costs of health and medical treatment as a result of the loss of independence.



Tenbury Transport Trust is a registered charity with a small office in Teme Street in the town from where the transport services are provided; the premises are publically accessible and generate a significant amount of both passenger and volunteer driver transactional activity.

The organisation currently has 5 Trustees and one part time transport administrator who is supported by two part time volunteer office staff. In addition, approx. 30 volunteer drivers provide the services using either their own cars of one of two minibuses the charity operates.

The service does not generate adequate revenue to cover costs, so business development is an ongoing and pronounced requirement. The Trust makes applications to funders for discretionary awards, works with transport commissioners to develop capacity and other local community transport providers to build a consortium and more collaborative way of working.
