If you require community transport options, please contact the relevant provider prior to travel for any service updates or measures in place.
There are a selection of local incentives to promote travelling by public transport including bus passes; for those aged 60 or over or you have an eligible disability, you will be entitled to a bus pass that allows free off-peak travel on local buses anywhere in England.
For anyone aged between 16 and 19, you can apply for an Endeavour card which gives you at least 25% off participating bus services (please note this cannot be used on Stagecoach services.)
Again, visit the Suffolk On Board website to apply. The card is free of charge to apply for and your journey must either start or finish in Suffolk to receive the discount.
The Voluntary Network
For those that are less able to travel by regular public transport, The Voluntary Network provides community transport options in the area including a door-to-door service.
A variety of routes can be requested such as Haverhill to West Suffolk Hospital. This is available, Monday to Friday between 7am and 7pm and is provided by Suffolk on Board. Residents of Haverhill can book online at Communities.SuffolkOnBoard.com or call 0345 606 6171.
This scheme is for those that are unable to access free travel on conventional bus services. To find out more and to apply please visit the Concessionary Section on the Suffolk On Board website.
