Local groups and services

  • We also have a list of national groups you might be interested in supporting.

There are many different groups, societies and services in Epping Forest which provide transport, represent their communities or organise social activities which relate to or benefit from public transport and safer streets.

Text below is taken from the organisations’ websites.

epping-forest-community-transportEpping Forest Community Transport

Epping Forest Community Transport is a service that meets the needs of local people who for various reasons are unable to use conventional public transport.

The service provides a lifeline in both rural and urban areas.

We also run local bus routes and provide transport for a wide range of clubs, voluntary/community groups and care homes. We offer a Dial-a-Ride and Social car service, Voluntary/Community Groups, Community Buses and Excursions.

Our vision is to operate a service that will allow everyone to be able to experience the same freedom of travel.
