Contract work

Including Special Educational Contracts, Social Service Contracts, Health Service Contracts and a Sainsbury’s shopping service.

In partnership with Stockport Community Transport, during the Spring of 2009 we secured a 6 month contract with Tameside Primary Care Trust to provide transport for renal patients.

Minibus hire

Community and voluntary groups can hire our buses and can use either our drivers/volunteers or their own driver. As we are committed to providing safe transport, all our drivers are trained to the nationally recognised MiDAS standard. Please contact our booking team manchester@

CT Oldham

Thanks to funding from Oldham MBC we run two important services for people with mobility difficulties in Oldham:

  • Promobility is Oldham's "shopmobility" service, based at Tommyfield Market in the heart of the town centre; we have a range of powered scooters and wheelchairs to give people independent mobility when shopping in Oldham town centre.
  • Dial-a-Ride is a minibus-based service catering for vital regular journeys across the Borough for people with complex mobility needs - particularly people who use wheelchairs.

Membership for each service is just £6 per year or join both for just £9 per year.

If you or someone you know needs one of these services, give our Oldham office a ring on one of the numbers on the right or email


CTM works in partnership with many other organisations including:

  • Stockport Community Transport, with whom we provide transport for renal patients in Tameside.
  • Transport for Greater Manchester.
  • Other Community Transport operators - we are a member of Greater Manchester CT Operators' Forum.
  • GMATL (Ring & Ride) with whom we jointly operate a Demand Responsive Transport service in North Manchester.
  • Sainsbury’s - we provide a shopping service.
