Waverley Hoppa Community Transport
Hoppa is a charity that supports the borough’s residents through its provision of supportive and affordable door-to-door transport to people of all ages.
Passengers use Hoppa for various reasons which may include rural isolation, disability, or vulnerability. Hoppa’s transportation services are comfortable, safe and reliable as well as affordable. Our buses are all wheelchair and pushchair accessible with fold-out steps, hydraulic tail lifts, or ramps. Our drivers & passenger assistants are specially trained and always ready to help.
99% of passengers that replied to a recent poll find Hoppa’s transport services to be excellent and would recommend them to friends and family. Some of our passengers say:
“I spend a lot of time on my own but Hoppa means I can get out.”
“We know most of the drivers and they are really good. They will help to carry my shopping to my front door – this is a big help.”
“You can rely on Hoppa … you know exactly when Hoppa will pick you up.”
“There’s no other reasonable alternative.”
“I love it and I would definitely recommend it to others.”
Hoppa has nearly 4000 registered passengers and makes over 70,000 passenger trips per year to hospitals, health centres, day care centres, grocery stores, town centres, schools, and all the other places that passengers need to go. Hoppa’s services are offered to all residents of the borough; transport helps give people a sense of independence, purpose and an interest in what life holds. We are proud to be helping people with their transport needs so that they may be healthier and happier!
Hoppa’s core services operate at a loss so fund-raising is essential to secure the future of these community transport services and helps to ensure that the cost of a fare is as low as it can be. Every donation helps, no matter its size!
Hoppa serves many different people in the borough. It supports the older generation: transport is one of the keys to their well-being, enabling them to maintain independence and health. It also supports younger people with special needs and their families, provides employment in a rural area as all the drivers and passenger assistants are paid, increases footfall in the four towns within the borough which helps to sustain local businesses, and supports the environment by reducing the number of cars on the road, making the local roads safer and cleaner.
Hoppa is committed to finding solutions for the transportation needs of our local communities. If you need help with transportation then please do call us!
