Services by area


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.

Home-to-school Service

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.
