Bill Freeman, CTA Chief Executive, welcomed guests to the event, which promised an packed agenda of interesting and thought provoking discussions and workshops

Delegates from across the UK attended the first Community Transport conference in Manchester last week. Jonathan Welch was there on the first day to listen in

Held at the well-appointed Hotel Football, right next to the stadium at Old Trafford, the CTA’s brand new annual event, featuring a conference, awards and workshops (CT19) was a big success, with a large number of attendees from across the community transport and related sectors. The first day featured a number of guest speakers from organisations which provide, commission, or use community transport, to give an insight not just into the provision of the physical service itself, that is to say the buses and driver, but the reasons why it is such a valuable asset to local communities, and what benefits it provides in a wider social and economic context.
