Other Transport Options

Parts of the Parish are served by a very limited provision of conventional bus services. However, there are opportunities where Community Transport may provide a service to Parishioners. Within Suffolk, there are a number of options including Dial a Ride, Community Car Service and Wheelchair Accessible Taxis. There is also the option to exchange a Concessionary Free Travel Bus Pass for Travel Vouchers which can be used on alternative modes of transport.

An overview of Suffolk’s Community Transport provision can be accessed via the following link

A list of wheelchair accessible taxis provided by operators in the Ipswich area is also provided

Over the past few years, the rules regarding provision of transport facilities to the hospitals in Suffolk, provided by the health authorities, have been rather more rigorously enforced than hitherto. This has led to people finding that they do not actually qualify for transport from Home to Hospital. Suffolk Age UK have produced a factsheet giving comprehensive information on the Transport to Hospital provision in Suffolk
