aCTive travel is for people who have difficulty using public transport either because they have restricted mobility or where their transport needs cannot be met by the existing transport network. Priority will be given to people with health appointments which can include visits to clinics, dentists, opticians and health visits but other destinations will be considered, for example, hairdressing appointments and visiting friends and family.
