Mid Devon Mobility
Mid Devon Mobility are a local charity making a difference to local people offering a variety of accessible transport solutions. Our services are aimed at connecting communities helping to increase the independence, mobility and peace of mind of older and disabled people, combating the problems of loneliness and isolation.
Tiverton & District Community Transport Association now known as Mid Devon Mobility was established in 1989, in response to a need for accessible transport in and around the Tiverton area. In 1990, they established their first Ring & Ride Scheme and by 1994, had firmly established in the role of a community transport provider for the area, and started to increase their services by introducing another small accessible minibus to transport small groups and individuals needing wheelchair transport.
