DORSET

Our services in Dorset are provided by Dorset Community Transport (also known as DCT), which was launched in 2011

DCT has a fleet of approximately 50 vehicles, over half of which are wheelchair accessible. Our drivers are trained to the nationally-recognised and accredited MiDAS (Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme) standard, which is administered by the Community Transport Association.

We operate across the entire county, with our offices based in Blandford Forum.
