We have a modern fleet of accessible minibuses available for member organisations to use. East London clients may opt to use their own qualified MiDAS driver or we can provide a MiDAS certificated driver. In addition we can provide trained passenger assistants who can help your passengers on and off an accessible vehicle (including wheelchair passengers). Community transport, of course, is all about providing a high quality service at the most reasonable price, as profit is not the driving force.
Whether you need EAST Community Transport to provide regular transportation all around east London, occasional use (perhaps to the Theatre Royal, Stratford East), a trip to the Natural History Museum, the National Portrait Gallery or the London Eye, a day out in east London or a day at the seaside (Southend-on-Sea, Clacton or Margate perhaps), please allow us to provide you with a competitive quotation to use our flexible and accessible community transport.
Member organisations may elect to use our professionally trained MiDAS drivers or may use their own MiDAS certificated drivers. Using your own driver, of course, dramatically reduces costs because you don’t have to pay for the time of a volunteer, MiDAS certificated driver. We also have our own community transport driver training school so we can quickly train your driver(s) to attain MiDAS certification and you can thereafter enjoy flexible and accessible community transport at the minimum cost.

The EAST Community Transport research report
In order to inform the initial direction of EAST Community Transport we commissioned two independent surveys – the first of individuals and the second of community groups in Newham. The results of that survey have been collated and we have made the full set of results available for download as a PDF - EAST Community Transport – Research Report.
