Minibus for community

The Bridgnorth Community Transport Group (BCTG) have taken delivery of their latest vehicle, a 14-seat minibus funded by the government’s Community Transport Minibus Fund. The new vehicle was handed over by local MP Philip Dunne to Peter Meehan, chair of Bridgnorth Community Transport Group.
Mr Dunne said, “The Group provide a valuable service to the local community, helping those with less access to transport due to age, sickness or cost, to get around in the Bridgnorth area.”

With three minibuses and 20 trained volunteer drivers, BCTG offers services running into Bridgnorth from Claverley, Cleobury Mortimer, Burwarton, Cleobury North, Ditton Priors, Hampton Loade and Alveley. Minibuses and drivers can be hired by local voluntary groups, who pay a mileage charge to cover a share of the running costs. BCTG’s office is at 16 St John’s Street, Bridgnorth, where bookings can be made. The office hours are 9am to 12.30pm and 1.30pm to 4pm, Monday to Friday.
