More about CTLA
CTLA has been serving local communities since 1987.
Our aim is to provide an accessible transport service for almost anyone, especially those who have difficulty using conventional public transport services.
Our offices are based in Newhaven from where we take booking and manage our fleet of minibuses.We are open from 8.00 am – 4.30 pm Monday to Friday on every day except bank holidays.
We work closely with local and county council in order to provide the best possible service. The type of service, fares and who the service is available to depends upon your local council. Please explore the site or call us on 01273 517332 for more details.
In some areas we offer social events through our Travel Club. Details are sent out to relevant members.
We take passenger safely very seriously. All our minibuses are fitted with seat belts and drivers are CRB checked.
All our drivers are regularly tested using MiDAS (Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme). This is an award winning, and nationally recognised, assessment and training scheme for minibus drivers in the voluntary and not-for-profit sectors and is run via the Community Transport Association.
MiDAS provides both classroom-based theory training and an on-road driving assessment for all minibus drivers and additional training on passenger assistance and the use of wheelchair accessible vehicles, for drivers who will be transporting passengers with disabilities.Regular refresher training is a significant element of MiDAS and in order to retain their MiDAS Certificate, drivers must attend refresher training every four years.
If you want to find out more about MiDAS please visit the Community Transport Association website.

CTA is the national representative body of voluntary sector transport operators covering the whole of the UK. It is the UK’ s biggest provider of quality, training and information on accessible, voluntary and community transport and has been in the forefront of promoting minibus safety for over 20 years.
