Connecting Communities is a transport service provided by Suffolk County Council designed to help people travel around the county of Suffolk who might not have access to a regular bus service.
Watch the video below to find out a bit more about what Connecting Communities could offer you.
Do you find it difficult to get to college, to the shops, medical appointments or to visit your friends and family in the county?
Suffolk County Council is working in partnership with Suffolk Community Transport Operators to help by Connecting Communities.
When you need to make a journey and there’s no public transport available to you locally, we’ll collect you and connect you to an appropriate bus route or train link for onward travel so you can reach your destination quickly and easily.
For journeys where connecting to other services is inappropriate, end to end journeys may be possible.
So, how do you use it?
- Call your local area operator up to a week before you’d like to travel – they’ll be able to answer any questions you might have.
- Book your journey
- Travel to your destination
