Bromley Council will be inviting offers from transport and taxi service providers (taxis, minibuses, coaches), as part of an upcoming opportunity to deliver these services to local residents. We are keen to secure services to support wheelchair accessibility.
The Council's Passenger Transport Services Framework will provide transport services to children, young people and adults, both with and without additional needs.
Clients could have a range of needs including; being wheelchair users and individuals with mobility needs, learning needs, sensory impairment, hidden disabilities, or a combination of these. In some cases, a passenger assistant will be required.
The type of vehicle that can be used is flexible as long as it meets the required specification.
We want to engage with suppliers who will:
- Work closely with us and understand our needs.
- Demonstrate flexibility and react quickly to changing service demands to support changes to the Council's requirements and our residents.
- Be innovative and efficient in the delivery of passenger transport services.
- Conduct their business in a socially responsible and ethical way.
