Here’s what our clients say about us:

“Having access to the buses has given the pupils in the Carrick and Girvan clusters the opportunity to participate in more sporting events and competitions throughout South Ayrshire at an affordable cost. The buses are easily accessible and enable Active Schools to increase participation in sport in particular within this area with transport being a major barrier to lack of participation.” Active Schools Driver

“I had my third heart attack in February and since then I had hardly left the house because they took my driving license away from me.  I have no family near me and my friends stopped coming round.  I think they were afraid that I would have a heart attack in front of them.  The social worker suggested I ring you and try going on a couple of your trips to see if they suited me.  I’m so glad I found you.  You go to such lovely places and I have a whole new community of friends now.  I go to other things with some of them between the trips.  It’s just transformed my life”Out & About Club member

“Door to Door collection is the best thing to have happened to me as I find it difficult to walk too far.  This is the reason I joined the club.  Do hope it will continue”Out & About Club member

“STROKEFOLK has had great benefit from the minibus since the beginning of the scheme.  Each week a number of members are collected and brought to the Stroke Group and returned back home.  Wheelchair users are accommodated too and the minibus has proven to be a very successful and necessary part of our weekly group.  As hiring from a local company has proven to be very expensive in the past the cost of hiring the minibus each week from SACT has helped the finances of our Stroke Group which is funded by donations. STROKEFOLK and the staff of SACT have now built up a very good relationship and we are very grateful to them … for all their help.“Community Group Member

“Sanderling View [Sheltered Housing Unit] have used the South Ayrshire Community Transport on a numerous of occasions for private day bookings. We find that the costings of SACT are very reasonable. The service SACT provides is most reliable and prompt with pick-up times. The staff both office based/drivers are very informative. We find that the bus is suitable for both wheelchair passengers, and people with walking aids. The drivers are very attentive and helpful especially with the door to door service that is provided during excursions and bookings.”Community Group Member

“The minibus is an enjoyable experience as he feels safe while in the wheelchair on the bus and on the lift. His wife loves the fact that he is looked after and is very safe with all the equipment that we use on the bus. It also puts her at ease as she now can relax as before she herself had to … worry about the transporting him in and out the car”Overmills Day Care Centre Staff Member

“I’ve been driving for Kyle Community Transport and SACT since March 2012, and have enjoyed transporting various community groups to various events and on trips.  I get a kick out of seeing people who would otherwise be at home “staring at four walls” getting out and about, enjoying themselves, seeing new things, and meeting new people.  The things they write in our comments book after some of these trips confirms just how much they get out of it too.  I’m especially pleased to see over the past year how people, previously strangers, have become friends, exchanging phone numbers and keeping in touch between trips.” SACT driver

“…please pass on our thanks to our driver and all were so impressed with the  comfortable mini bus and the service from the driver.” – Community Group Member
