Tendring Community Transport

TCT is a well established and accomplished Community Transport scheme, that provides wheelchair accessible, door-to-door transport, for people of all ages.

TCT’s services are driven by its customers, whose representatives sit on the Trustees Board. In addition to regular services, TCT offers a customer-led Day Trips service.

TCT’s success stems from customer involvement, a hardworking and creative workforce (including our highly skilled and motivated volunteer drivers).  Our key partners Essex County Council, whose aims and objectives overlap with our own, and whose grant aid enables TCT’s development.

TCT’s “Can do” approach delivered 119369  passenger journeys in 2019/20. Not bad for a small charity and its six social car schemes partners. Our ongoing aim is to provide creative solutions to complex transport problems.
