Wyvern Community Transport is a not for profit organisation providing transport services for the residents of Rochford district and Castle Point Borough. Our service provides a valuable link for people unable to use public transport due to illness, age or geographical isolation. Our cars and minibuses may be used for appointments, shopping, or social events. Please feel free to contact us for further information.
Can I use it?
Yes, if you are a permanent resident of either Rochford district or Castle Point Borough and find it difficult to use conventional transport for any of these reasons:
- Restricted mobility
- You are temporarily unable to use public transport
- You live in an area not served by public transport
- Your transport needs are not met by existing timetables
How can I use it?
Community Transport can be used by its members for any of these activities: hospital visiting; social/day centres; further education; rehabilitation classes; chiropodist appointments; to visit family and friends; shopping; doctor, dentist or optician appointments; lunch clubs; church – and many other activities.
How much does it cost?
Membership of the Scheme is free. Members will be required to register for the scheme each year and assist with the cost of the journey by paying £4.00 for any distance up to 3 miles. For journeys over 4 miles in our minibuses £0.60p per mile is payable and for journeys over 4 miles in our social cars £0.45p per mile is payable.
Our minibuses are also available, within a brokerage scheme, for use by registered groups in the area. They can be used for visits to the theatre; garden centres; shopping trips; days out to The London Eye, Clacton, Tiptree Jam Factory, Hyde Hall etc. or for school trips. There is an annual membership scheme for groups. The subscription is £15. The minimum charge for a local trip within a 10 mile radius of pick up is £35 and £1.30p per mile thereafter is payable. It is advisable to make all group bookings well in advance to avoid disappointment
Wyvern Community Transport currently has 6 minibuses and 1 Caddy vehicle in its fleet. One of our minibuses is pictured, and this one is used primarily for our Castle Point service. All our minibuses are wheelchair accessible, have low level entry, rear lift platforms and seat belts.
