Easylink is a fully accessible door to door service operated by Nottingham Community Transport on behalf of Nottingham City Council for citizens who struggle, for any reason, to use the main transport network.

The service runs using brand new, fully accessible mini buses which are designed to take up to 8 passengers or 2 wheelchairs and 2 passengers at once. The drivers are fully trained and are able to provide more help and support than normal bus drivers and can help you on the bus or to your door where it’s safe to do so.
