Tavistock Country Bus

The Tavistock Country Bus (TCB) is a community transport organisation (CTO) set up in 1981 with a view to addressing the gap in both public and commercial transport provision in Tavistock, a rural town in West Devon. TCB’s key purpose is to extend mobility and independence to those who do not have access to local public or commercial transport or a car. Although open to everyone, this tends to be older passengers (aged 65 and over) – many of whom have mobility issues and are susceptible to isolation and loneliness. TCB also aims to contribute to sustaining the town and the local economy by helping to connect local people to local retailers and services (e.g. health care services).
