Group Membership

In order to use our minibuses, community groups and  organisations need to be a member of Community Transport (Brighton, Hove & Area) Ltd.

Member organisations can book to use our minibuses on a regular basis or for one off trips. Our minibuses can be booked for as little as an hour or as long as a week or more.

Community Transport operates under a Section 19 small bus permit which rules that it is illegal for non members to use our vehicles. A minibus can only be hired for activities by group members which are not profit making.

Find out more about our minibuses by taking a look at our fleet.
