Started in 2001 as Glenkens Transport Initiative and re-named in 2019 as Galloway Community Transport, our charity has become an important part of the local community and is greatly valued by people living in an area with very limited public transport.
Whether it be going on the of the regular GCT excursions, using the Wednesday evening bus service from Dalry to Castle Douglas, travelling to Newton Stewart for shopping and swimming on Tuesdays or being a member of one of the many user groups, there is always something for everyone.
GCT owns three minibuses – one with 16, one with 15 and one with 8 seats.
The 15 and 8 seat vehicles are wheelchair accessible.
All our vehicles undergo regular safety checks by an independent garage.
All GCT drivers are MIDAS certified.
GCT works very closely with Dumfries and Galloway Council providing transport for Dalry School and a Summer Activity Playscheme in Castle Douglas. This excellent working relationship not only gives us a regular source of income but also access to extra vehicles if we require them.
New friends are often made by using the services we provide either as a passenger or a volunteer driver, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries
