Sheffield Travel Buddy Service is a partnership between Sheffield City Council and Sheffield Community Transport, offering support to anyone, aged 16 years and over, with getting out and about.
The service can cater for older people, people with physical impairments and/or sensory impairments, learning disabilities, people with mobility or mental health issues. If you need support to travel, or do not wish to travel alone then the Sheffield Travel Buddy Service can help.
Travel Buddies provide friendship and companionship, helping clients to build confidence and gain independence. Buddies offer physical and emotional support as you go to and from your destination. After meeting you at your door or at a place of your choice, your buddy will then go with you by bus, tram, taxi, train or on foot to your destination.
Whatever the reason, having support from a Travel Buddy is a great way to get out and about, to meet friends, go shopping and keep appointments etc.
