Community and Demand Responsive Transport

Demand responsive transport, often known, as community transport, is the provision of non-profit making transport for members of the community who do not have suitable conventional public transport services available for their travel needs.

Dial-a-ride schemes provide transport for disabled and elderly people who have the potential to become housebound.

It gives people the opportunity to shop and use local amenities, which they otherwise could not access.

Dial-a-ride operates like a taxi service with users having to book their journey. The vehicles are specially adapted for wheelchairs.

St Helens Community Transport operates across the whole of St Helens area using existing and new resources to provide fully accessible transport to meet the transport needs of local communities and groups, which are not being met by public transport. St Helens Community Transport is a Community Interest Company and there is a charge for users of the service.

Shopmobility is a service where battery powered wheelchairs, scooters and manual wheelchairs are available to loan to anyone with a mobility impairment, whether permanent or temporary, to help them do their shopping or use other facilities in the Town Centre.
