Dorset Community Transport (also known as DCT) forms part of ECT Charity which is both a charity and a social enterprise that combines business thinking with social values to deliver high quality transport services that positively benefit the local communities. DCT’s community-based door-to-door transport services help keep disabled, isolated and/or lonely people independent and mobile, as well as less isolated and lonely.
Throughout the decades, ECT Charity has been involved in driving up standards in accessible transport services both locally and through its active membership of the Community Transport Association. The Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme (MiDAS) and Passenger Assistant Training Scheme (PATS) lie at the heart of quality standards making sure that transport is safe for the most vulnerable members of our community.
ECT Charity has established a track record for high-quality, efficient services that users appreciate for their personal approach, safety and security. In 2012 ECT Charity delivered, as lead partner, the London 2012 Accessible Shuttles project on behalf of the Olympic Delivery Authority, and DCT was proud to provide the accessible bus shuttles for spectators visiting the London 2012 events at Weymouth and Portland. Mayor Boris Johnson hailed the team “the unsung heroes” of London 2012.
In 2014, ECT Charity provided a high-quality Accessible Shuttles service for the Invictus Games. In 2015, ECT Charity provided a very well received Accessible Shuttles service for the Rugby World Cup, covering all matches played at Twickenham and the Olympic Stadium throughout the six week duration of the tournament.
ECT Charity is the name used to represent our community transport companies which operate in Ealing (ECT), Cornwall, Cheshire and Dorset (DCT).
