We operate several home-to-school services transporting hundreds of pupils to mainstream and special educational-needs schools across the county. These services are contracted by and operated on behalf of the local authorities (currently Dorset County Council, Bournemouth Borough Council and Borough of Poole).
Pupils are allocated to a service by the respective local authority, whose Passenger Transport teams then liaise with us and other transport operators directly.
The local authority provides Passenger Assistants where required for special educational-needs services. Several of these services are for wheelchair users where we provide accessible vehicles.
Ealing Community Transport (ECT) has been named as the winner of a national competition celebrating the impact of social enterprises on their communities and wider society.
A Dorset voluntary group helping people with leg-related problems has stepped up its services over the past few months – thanks to a new minibus provided by Dorset Community Transport (DCT).
Following a major consultation exercise with our team, ECT Charity has developed a fresh vision and mission, and a new set of values, to guide our work as a charity and social enterprise.
