HUBS centres - Driving Mobility

HUBS centres

The Department for Transport has funded a pilot scheme by creating seven Regional Transport Hubs across the country. The purpose of the Hubs is to provide information about realistic transport options for individuals.

The Government has recognised the link between limited mobility and lack of access to transport with an increase in loneliness and social isolation.

To try to tackle this issue, the Department for Transport has funded a pilot scheme by creating seven Regional Transport Hubs across the country.  The purpose of the Hubs is to provide information about realistic transport options for individuals, to help promote greater independence as well as combating loneliness and social isolation.

What kind of information can Hubs provide?

The ‘Alternatives to Driving’ category in this website gives general information on local, national and international modes of transport.  The Transport Hub will look to help with travel information, signposting and options specific to your personal needs.

The Hubs can also provide driver retirement support to those who no longer wish, or are unable, to continue driving.
