About Us

 

Boston Community Transport was registered as a not for profit Charity on 20th June 2005 and operates from the Len Medlock Voluntary Centre in Boston.

 

We continuously promote our service with specific partners such as AGE UK, Royal Voluntary Service, Dementia Action Alliance, Boston Borough Council, Lincolnshire County Council, and Crossroads Lunch Club  as well as doctors’ surgeries, dentists and hospitals.

 

As a Charity we take training very seriously. All our volunteers and staff have been trained correctly, to achieve their best and give the customers the best experience possible and to improve our service.
