Tees Valley Transport Brokerage

Homepage eMail

| Tel: 07949049822

This Project is led by TVRCC working from bases at Skinningrove Link-Up in East Cleveland and eVOLution in Darlington. It is a 3 year project funded by the BIG Lottery's Reaching Communities Grant Programme and ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England) which will extend TVRCC’s successful minibus brokerage scheme in East Cleveland to cover the west Tees Valley.

A minibus brokerage brings together individuals and groups who need safe, affordable transport with locally owned minibuses. The brokerage service provides residents with greater travel opportunities whilst earning increased revenue for minibus owner / operators by maximising usage of their vehicles. It is a win win situation where the community benefits from increased travel opportunities - from a 'one stop shop' where bookings are taken and vehicles and drivers allocated - while usage of local minibuses is increased.

The new project also aims to develop volunteer car schemes and demand-responsive services to enhance our community transport provision in order to cater for individuals as well as community groups.
