Staff and service users with the new fleet of buses

In June 2018 Newcastle City Council's Adult Social Care team took over responsibility for providing transport for some of the most vulnerable people across Newcastle.

The six new buses were delivered during November 2018, providing high quality transport across the city to care services, day services, independent providers and education providers as part of our SEN provision. 

The fleet of buses play a vital part in supporting people to access the care and support they need and running alongside the new vehicles is an ongoing review of the fleet, looking at the demand on the service and the ambition to order more buses to add to the fleet.
