Walsall Community Transport

Door to Door Shopper

Due to a lack of members, there will be no trips on Mondays and Fridays. The days and destinations of the other trips may vary, if you need the latest details please contact us.

We operate a door-to-door bus service to help elderly and less mobile residents of Bloxwich as well as Aldridge & Pheasey go shopping. The service has been developed to help elderly & disabled residents who struggle to carry their shopping home using conventional bus services. The service is financially supported by TfWM.

Our modern well-equipped minibuses are all specially adapted to accommodate everyone including wheelchair users; and our friendly staff will be on hand to assist you to and from your door.

Registering for this service gives residents on occasions the opportunity at times to visit other places further afield such as Penkridge Market & Lichfield Town Centre.

If you or someone you know in or around Walsall could be helped by this service, please let us know as depending on feedback we may expand the shopper service into other areas.

Day Trips

Although the door-to-door shopper was developed for residents who struggle to get to their shops, we want people who are mobile to feel able to use the service too. We offer so much more than just transport, residents who use the service develop friendships with the other passengers and can also access the day trips out that we offer through our Let’s Chat project that looks to tackle loneliness with transport.

Every year we operate a programme of excursions during the summer months and pass holders who are registered with us can book a seat. If you are interested in finding out more about our services please contact us.
