Our new name: Galloway Community Transport

We've recently changed name to better reflect the nature and geographic range of our activities. Over the next few weeks we'll be updating the livery on our minibuses and using our new name on all our materials.

Newton Stewart weekly service schedule change

Commencing Tuesday 9 July the weekly Newton Stewart service will run on Tuesdays (not Fridays) leaving Dalry at 0930 until further notice

See the Services page for details.


Ayr and Carlisle alternate months

Starting in July 2019 the monthly service will alternate between Ayr and Carlisle.

See the Services page for details.

Patient Transport

GCT recently started operating a car-based patient transport scheme to get people to and from hospital if they don’t have their own transport or are unable to drive.

   Initially, the service will be in response to referrals from the Scottish Ambulance Service but the aim is to extend it to anyone with a genuine need and to include journeys to out-of-region hospitals.

   I’d like to gather as much information as possible about the extent of the need for this service in the Glenkens so if you have observations or suggestions or if you are in need of patient transport please email them to or phone Glen on 07841 512449.

2020 Excursions

We are currently seeking suggestions for excursions in 2020.

Some excursions are in the process of being organised.

Please check this website regularly for the most up-to-date information.

GCT excursions and monthly services can now be booked online on the booking page of the CatStrand website.
