NEW LOOK EASYLINK ACCESSIBLE BUS OFFERS PERSONAL TOUCH FOR PASSENGERS
Nottingham Community Transport (Nottingham CT) is celebrating the launch of Easylink, its new look accessible bus service, which helps people who struggle to use existing bus and tram services in Nottingham.
The Easylink service operated by Nottingham CT on behalf of Nottingham City Council provides door to door transport to users whether they want to get to shops, leisure activities, medical appointments or any other journey within 10 miles of the city. All passengers need to do is register, then phone, text or email to book journey of their choice.
The new Easylink logo, vehicles and brand replacement refreshes the Dial-A-Ride service previously operated by Nottingham CT and was officially launched on Wednesday 16th March 2016.
“We pride ourselves on being the small operator with the big heart and the personal touch which defines the Easylink service,” said Ian Combellack, General Manager of Nottingham CT. “Our team of regular, friendly and of course, fully trained drivers are on hand to assist you on and off vehicles if ever you need that help and any escorts which passengers have can travel for free.”
“This existing personal touch combined with the new Easylink image and brand new fleet of minibus vehicles makes our lifeline link even more attractive to the people of Nottingham,” he concluded.
Regular passenger and board member of Nottingham CT, Asmita Nathwani said: “I have been using this service for a number of years and without it I’d be stuck when it comes to making simple journeys which others might take for granted. Nottingham has great public transport services but people who are less mobile or frail can be left out of the equation. Easylink makes sure no one is left stranded and everyone is included.”
All people have to do to use Easylink is register for free to become a user of the service and those with Mobility Citycards have automatic membership. Holders of a disabled concessionary card from Nottinghamshire County Council and who live within the Greater Nottingham area, need simply contact Nottingham CT to confirm their membership.
