What is Ride?


Ride is a pre-booked service to help improve transport in the rural areas of Essex and Suffolk. It not only opens up where you can go, but when. Whether that’s for you, your family or as a group of friends. Ride can help you have a more affordable way to get to work, do the school run, visit friends or head out to local events. Try it out or suggest where would be a good route for you. We work with local, approved suppliers and have the possibility of adjusting routes based on demand.


Ride is here to help improve how you provide transport in rural areas. We can help you understand how to be more efficient with the route you currently offer. We’re piloting routes with a number of suppliers around Essex and Suffolk. If you’re a community transport supplier or Private Hire Vehicle, and are interested to know more, just get in touch.

Ride and local events

Ride can also help support what’s going on throughout the year. We’ve previously supported getting people from surrounding villages to local fireworks and Christmas Fayres. If you have an event coming up or are a local attraction that would like to know more, Ride is here to help everyone get places.
