Twenty years of community transport in Devon

PUBLISHED: 20:30 19 July 2010

COMMUNITY transport has been enriching the lives of people across Devon for 20 years - and Honiton was one of the very first towns to benefit.

A pilot ring and ride project was established in the town two decades ago, with the help of Devon County Council.

The aim was to overcome a lack of public transport serving rural towns and villages.

Since then, the service has grown and adapted to meet people’s changing needs - and you can find out all about it during a special display on Allhallows Playing Field.

TRIP Community Transport Association will be showing off its fleet of vehicles and providing information about services during Market Charter Day on Saturday.
