The Greenlinks Community Transport Service is a friendly professional community travel service, providing low cost travel to individuals and community groups in the Vale of Glamorgan.
The Service is provided Monday - Friday: approximately 8:30 to 17:00. We also provide occasional evening and weekend work for group bookings.
We are looking for volunteers aged 21+ who have held a driving licence for a minimum of two years. We have a range of vehicles from accessible cars to 12 seater minibuses to provide transport for residents of the Vale of Glamorgan.
The service provides transport as far as Bridgend, Porthcawl, Llantrisant and Cardiff and generally operate between 8:30 and 17:00. Greenlinks is open to residents of the Vale of Glamorgan to join.
In order to be able to drive the 3 larger buses a volunteer would need to have a D1 category on their Licence. If they passed their driving test before 1997 (and haven't lost their licence since then) it is automatically on their licence. The vehicles are based at the Alps Depot, Wenvoe.
