We have had a lot of enquiries regarding transport and the expense of it. Therefore I personally made a few phone calls and have come up with some hopefully good news!!
So far I have 6 Community Transport Companies (not for profit organizations) whose aim is to provide accessible, affordable and reliable community transport that encourages and supports the participation of local residents in community activity and economic opportunity.

Last year Brockburn Very Sheltered contacted South West Community Transport (Tel 0141 881 9998) Margaret Urie who arrange many trips on a monthly basis. This group arrange many outings to Ayr, Saltcoats, Helensburgh, Balloch, Largs etc, each trip costs £6.00 and the mini bus comes direct to the complex. Our tenants have raved about the trips, one tenant said it has given her a new lease of life, its like having a wee holiday each week.
