This book discusses the concept of "community transport", defined as the use of volunteer, unpaid drivers to organise and operate a rural public transport service. The intention of the book is to give practical advice and information to enable local communities to evaluate the options available to run such a service. The two main forms of community transport discussed are social car and community bus schemes:- chapter 1 - first steps, discusses the basic options available, while chapter 2 - community bus services, and chapter 3 - social car schemes, discuss these services individually. The appendices give brief details of planning a flexibly routed bus service, instructions for driver and controller, and traffic commissioners requirements. /TRRL/
