Door 2 Door services

updated: 5 November - updated in line with Government guidance on National restrictions from 5 November   

Door 2 Door bus services (also known as Community Transport) are for people who have difficulty using the mainstream public transport network. These services use fully accessible vehicles and can take you from your own home to places round your local area - like supermarkets or town centres - without the need to get to a bus stop. 

Community Transport - Coronavirus updates

Due to national restrictions in place from 5 November to 2 December Community Transport will be providing essential journeys only. Please contact your local operators for details when booking. 

Changes to Community Transport services

Community Transport Dial-a-Ride services in South Yorkshire restarted in Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster on Wednesday 1 July and in Barnsley on Tuesday 7 July.

The service provided is for essential journeys only and a maximum of two trips per week, per passenger will be permitted with trips limited to within 5 miles. This is so that the Community Bus operators can accommodate as many journeys and support as many customers as possible whilst space on their vehicles is reduced due to social distancing measures. 

Please note:

  • you must wear a face covering onboard and in transport hubs such as stations and interchanges, unless you are exempt.  More information on exemptions can be found on the Gov.uk website.

  • Hospital services are not available at this time.

  • Only one passenger – or two from the same household - may travel in the minibus and will use the seats furthest from the driver at the rear of the vehicle.

Customers are not permitted to travel if they have any symptoms of COVID-19 (check the NHS website for symptoms) and will be asked to confirm they do not have symptoms before entering the vehicle.
