The CT Week is a time to spotlight the incredible efforts of staff, volunteers, drivers, coordinators, and everyone in the CT sector who works tirelessly to provide reliable transportation options for those who face mobility challenges or lack access to conventional modes of transportation.
When is Community Transport Week?
In 2023, Community Transport Week will be held from the 16th – 21st October.
Why is Community Transport Week Important?
The goal of CT Week is twofold; to raise awareness of the significance of accessible and inclusive transport options for everyone, particularly people in the community, including those with mobility challenges, disabilities, older people, and those with, limited access to private vehicles or conventional public transport.
The second is to celebrate the invaluable efforts of CT providers across the UK who support millions of people across the UK and are using transport to create a more inclusive and connected society.

We’ve suggested these themes as ways to help you celebrate and share the powerful story of the impact you have in your communities.
