Providing Community Transport services in Leeds

Leeds Alternative Travel has been helping the community in Leeds to get out and about since it was founded in 1997 as an Industrial and Provident Society to provide community transport services in the city. In 2008 we joined HCT Group – one of the UK’s leading social enterprises. We provide a range of high-quality transport services for the community out of our Water Lane depot.

Minibus hire – a low cost alternative: We provide community groups, clubs and non-profit organisations in Leeds with a financially supported scheme to access cheap minibuses - Group Transport. This service is financially supported by the work of CT Plus Yorkshire as a social enterprise.

Minibus driver training: We provide Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme (MiDAS) training, helping our community group members driver vehicles themselves, saving on having to hire a driver with their vehicle. 

Passenger Assistant Training:  This programme provides the nationally recognised qualification for people who are - or would like to work as - Passenger Assistants.
