The charity that provides community travel services for residents is back.

Uttlesford Community Travel has resumed with a restricted service for its members.

Additional features have been added to the minibuses to make them Covid-safe.

All minibuses have been fitted with a PPE station, and clear plastic screens have been fitted for both the driver and passengers.

The driver will take the passenger’s temperature on boarding the vehicle, and entry will be declined if the reading is high.

Passengers will need to wear a facemask when on the minibus.

Members wishing to take advantage of the Hospital Car service, which is also restricted at present, should contact one of the numbers below.

Uttlesford Community Travel personnel said they are aware that Government guidance on coronavirus does change so the charity will keep this under constant review.
