CTG is a Social Enterprise and was established to provide relief to communities of Glasgow and its environs, particularly the East End, West of Glasgow and East Dunbartonshire, who are in need due to age, mobility, mental and physical disability, illness and poverty. This is achieved by providing affordable, reliable, accessible transport solutions to the local communities served. CTG provides transport to 75,000 passengers per annum, equating to over 125,000 journeys. 70% of our passengers are over the age of 65. The transport solutions provided are tailored to the needs of people who have difficulty accessing public transport.
CTG continues to operate during the current pandemic offering adapted transport services within its own resources to support communities in need and key services including:
Providing transport supporting the NHS (Greater Glasgow and Clyde, and Lanarkshire) for non-emergency patients, and non-patient transport.
Operating a Transport Hub for NHS Lanarkshire to co-ordinate, schedule, book, and dispatch this transport.
Providing transport for SPT Subway ensure key workers (train drivers) get to work and the subway continues to operate
Operating a Community Bus Service (CB2) in Drumchapel that is enabling people to get to the local shops and chemists.
Providing support to our members through regular phone calls and delivery of food
Providing transport for key workers of a Care Home to get to work
