Galloway Community Transport provides a range of transport services throughout the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright and surrounding areas including regular services to Castle Douglas, Dumfries, Newton Stewart, Ayr and Carlisle, excursions to places of interest and vehicle hire to members (with or without a driver).
We also offer Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme (MiDAS) training courses and training for D1 by test for new GCT drivers and for GCT member organisations' drivers.
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.
Commencing Tuesday 9 July the weekly Newton Stewart service will run on Tuesdays (not Fridays) leaving Dalry at 0930 until further notice
Starting in July 2019 the monthly service will alternate between Ayr and Carlisle.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Glen on 07841 512449.
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.
