CB3 Community Bus
Cost-cutting is prevalent throughout our communities – and transport links is just one example of where services are being dropped due to a lack of funding and requirement. But the CB3 Community Bus initiative, a transport project that links villages around Bridport, Beaminster and Crewkerne with these towns on a Saturday, is changing that for local residents in Beaminster.
Run by local volunteers, the CB3 project started when Dorset County Council donated a minibus that was surplus from its own fleet, and helped to train volunteer drivers to help the community service start.
From the drivers to the people selling and checking ticket stubs, this initiative has been set up to provide a connection between other towns in the community for individuals who either do not have access to transport themselves, can no longer drive or simply need a way to move from A-B. For more information about the CB3 project please contact the CB3 Team on 07716 643087. For the timetable you can pick them up in Beaminster’s Yarn Barton Centre, the Town Council office or click here
