In 2000 Brentwood Community Transport Partnership was formed with the aim of improving the transport provision for people in the local community who had limited mobility or who would otherwise be socially excluded or geographically isolated.
Following on from this Brentwood Community Transport was finally launched on 21st May 2001.
We gained our independent charitable status in March 2010. We have a very strong team of trustees which includes Brentwood councillors who have a strong knowledge and a firm understanding of local needs. The Chief Executive Officer has an excellent track record of operating a transport facility and an entrepreneurial flair whilst staying true to our core purpose.
