Case study: TAP Age UK

At the TAP end. Age UK's vital community transport service.

Age UK run TAP (Transport, Access, People) a "transport service for people who have non-emergency healthcare appointments, difficulty accessing other forms of public transport and for organisations and groups, so that they can attend social activities."

Challenges faced by the service:

  • Can be unreliable and unpredictable
