Third Sector Services' Community Transport Service
Third Sector Services now run three community bus routes in the county, aimed at those less abled or those who find walking difficult.
There are three routes available:
The Cheltenham 'V' service
The V service in Cheltenham has been running for more than a year and has seen passenger figures rise dramatically during that time. Now more than 1,000 people use the bus to get to Cheltenham General Hospital, Sainsbury's supermarket on Hales Road, and into the town centre. In a recent passenger survey one response said the passengers called it 'the happy bus'. The success of the service has been acknowledged by the Department for Transport as an exemplar of national good practice.
