The quality standards contained within the framework have been designed to:

  • Support the development of a professional and accountable Community Transport (CT) sector
  • Be appropriate to the legal and practical framework of the CT sector
  • Increase the quality of transport provision from the third and voluntary sectors both on the part of passengers and funding/contracting bodies
  • Incur a minimal extra administrative burden

Structure of the Framework

The structure of the framework is designed to cover the key aspects of operating a community transport organisation which are divided into 4 main areas:

  • Vehicle Management
  • Governance
  • Finance/Planning, and
  • Operations

There are four categories of compliance that community transport operators can apply for depending on the nature of services they provide.
