Who are we?
Transport 17 is a small, friendly, caring community organisation which has existed since 1984 to provide accessible transport to lunch and social clubs for those who would otherwise not be able to get out and about.
Transport 17 makes a difference to people’s lives as we give our passengers an opportunity to meet up with old friends and to make new ones, to share a good lunch and to enjoy a game or a film.
We currently make over 200 passenger trips each week to 13 clubs in the S17 and neighbouring areas from Monday to Friday using three minibuses.
We rely on volunteers to drive our buses, assist our passengers, raise funds and run the management committee. Our volunteers enjoy what they do and we’d always like to hear from you if you could spare some time to help others.
We hope you find our website a useful source of information.
Please get in touch if we can help you or if you’d like to help us!
They opened the prison doors for me.
I had no key.
They came with a smile and helpful arm
And oodles of charm.
They opened my world and let me see
There’s help out there for you and me.
The blue ‘bus rattles round the corner,
But unlike little Jack Horner,
With his curds and whey;
I’m off to a luncheon club.
So to all these caring volunteers
I lift my cuppa tea,
And say from me grateful thanks
CHEERS friends CHEERS.
