Our Story

T17 initial logo.png
Transport 17 is a small, friendly, charitable organisation which has existed within Totley and the wider community since 1984. The group was established by a local group of volunteers led by Alan Jockel, a previous vicar at Totley All Saints Church, who saw a need within the local community. They bought their first minibus for £10,000 paid for in equal parts by funds raised within the local community, and by Age Concern. Transport 17 now operates 3 minibuses, the most recent of which was purchased in 2016 for £50,000.

The organisation is non-profit making and is embedded within the community allowing for partnerships with local statutory and non-statutory groups. We are dependent on volunteers to provide our transport services, raise funds and be part of the Board of Trustees; however, this in turn provides opportunities for individuals across the age range to develop their skills, confidence, and friendship groups.
