Spectrum Community Transport

Transporting our members

Spectrum Community Transport began in 2008. We currently have 2 x 17 seater mini buses, which can be hired by community transport members. Our members include sports clubs, luncheon clubs, shopping trips, schools, community groups and organisations, as well as individuals.

Our buses can be hired by our members for outings or you can join out trip club. We organise trips throughout the year for our trip club members, from Barnard Castle to Berwick and Sunderland to Sheffield. Trips are priced from £5, plus the annual £1 membership.

Trips are booked with a £4 non-refundable deposit. We also recently started a monthly luncheon club, where we visit local pubs and cafes to enjoy a tasty lunch. It’s a great way to get out and about and meet up with new or even old friends!

Please contact us if you would like to join the trip club or would like a quote for bus hire.

      After you’ve shopped until you’ve dropped, if you fancy a rest and a convenient bite to eat, there’s an excellent selection of restaurants and cafes at the Food Court, where you’ll find Burger King, El Taco Loco, Roosters and Café Real.

      The streets surrounding Houndshill are also packed with high-street staples like M&S and Argos. For something a little leftfield, venture out of the centre towards Topping Street and Abingdon Street on the east side of town, where you’ll discover some locally-run independent stores.
