DescriptionWandsworth Community Transport (WCT) is a registered charity that provides specialist transport services across the borough of Wandsworth for community groups and individuals with mobility problems, including regular shopping trips and outings.

They provide a shopping shuttle service to help people get to Wandsworth shopping centre. It is a door-to-door service that runs daily and offers a regular weekly slot on the same bus with the same driver to ensure a friendly and secure environment. They also offer monthly trips to other shopping locations in London.

The charity offers outings to pub lunches, days out to the coast and other places of interest, as well as minibus hire for groups. Visit the website for a full list of current outings and trips. WCT runs a fleet of minibuses and vehicles which are fully wheelchair accessible and suitable for people with mobility problems, and they will consider any new transport request. There are two separate groups for outings:

- 'Road Runner' offers door-to-door services for people with mobility problems
- 'Silver Day Trippers' for more mobile passengers, including trips and outings further afield

WCT also runs Wandsworth Shopmobility at Southside shopping centre (see separate entry), which provides powered wheelchairs and scooters for daily hire and long-term hire.
