Some people may need support to travel, find accessible transport or they may just need information and advice about travel.  There are organisations that can give information and support with needs like travelling in a wheelchair, getting on and off buses and trains and travelling in a scooter. You can get support to travel if you need it or do not wish to travel alone. 

Community transport providers can help you to get out and about if you find it very difficult or impossible to use public transport. They offer a range of door to door transport services to allow you to participate more fully in society, to travel to lunch clubs, hospital visiting, adult education classes, shopping, leisure or simply visiting friends.

There are also details of mobility shops, organisations to hire mobility aids from and shop mobility schemes to help you get about when you reach your destination.

Travel South Yorkshire Journey Planner provides help to plan your journey using public transport.
