Community Transport Consultation
Community transport is a key method for many to reach their health care appointments.
Community Transport groups that are operating on a not-for-profit basis have been able to apply for permits to carry passengers in a bus or minibus without first holding the Public Service Vehicle operator’s licence (PSV licence) that would otherwise be required.
The Government is consulting on the permit system as concerns have recently been raised that some community transport operators that use permits are competing with commercial operators, which are required to hold a PSV licence. More Details and ways to participate can be found here.
