Community Transport Community transport can be a good option to enable older people, those who are socially isolated, vulnerable or disabled to get out and about. Going by bus If you live near a bus route that takes you into your local town, this can be an easy way to do your shopping and make other essential or leisure trips. Light rail and trams There are a number of modern light rail or tram systems operating which provide quick, convenient, and accessible travel around cities. Taking the train Another useful option for local travel is to take the train. Using Taxis The use of taxis for local journeys can prove to be less costly than the upkeep and running of your own vehicle.
