Description:

In 2007, our CEO Matt Roberts started working for Bluebird community partnership. Back then we had two minibuses & one wheelchair-accessible car. Some years later, our late chair John Griffiths, was the driving force behind forming Crawley Community Transport, which took on the running of the old Crawley Dial – A – Ride Service.

Together, in 2013, we formed the Horsham District community transport. In the interim years, we took on the community buses in East Grinstead, Henfield, Hurst & Hassocks.

In 2016, the 3 founding charities merged to create CT Sussex. Soon afterwards, our friends at Worthing Dial A Ride became members of CT Sussex and fully merged with us in 2020. We now operate a fleet of around 50 vehicles with over 100 colleagues and volunteers, providing and supporting community transport across West Sussex.

To further that aim, we opened our newest depot in Chichester in January 2023.

During the COVID 19 pandemic we had to switch our operations to adjust to everyone’s changing circumstances. We quickly became aware of an increasing number of people who might be described as newly isolated. We started to collect people’s shopping for their prescriptions and taking people to vital medical appointments. Since emerging from the pandemic, many people have lost the confidence to venture out or still feel uncomfortable using public transport.

Although our charitable delivery is the provision and facilitation of accessible transport, our main objective is the reduction of social isolation and loneliness. In fact, our stated aim is to create an integrated community transport network across our country so that no one is disadvantaged by not having access to safe, affordable, accessible transport.
