COVID-19

Do you need transport to your Covid-19 vaccination?

Find your nearest community transport scheme by clicking here or, call West Sussex’s Community Hub (Covid) on 033 022 27980 and ask them for your nearest scheme contact.

If you find that your local scheme is not able to help you can contact CT Sussex on 01403 754206 to book a journey. The minibuses are thoroughly cleaned between passengers, drivers will be wearing appropriate PPE, and safety procedures will be in place to ensure the journeys are as safe as possible.

CT Sussex transport is available to and from your home address. Availability of journeys is mostly between 10am and 2pm, due to driver schedules; however, if your appointment is outside of these times, you can still get in touch to discuss options.
