HcL Transport is a registered charity, set up in 1982 as Handicabs (Lothian) Limited. We provide supported accessible transport for people with mobility challenges in Edinburgh and the Lothians.
Our services support people of any age who have mobility challenges. This includes older people; people with disabilities, Additional Support Needs, health issues (long term or short term) affecting mobility; and geographic remoteness.
We provide a door-through-door service by providing the additional assistance many need at the start and end of a journey. This may be assisting people with getting their coat on or locking their door for them. It may be providing an arm as they walk out from their home to the bus. It may be ensuring that they are safely in their home after the journey.
We provide a service 365 days a year, evenings and weekends (subject to driver availability).
In addition, we provide a Community Bus service in Broxburn and Uphall, West Lothian, as a pilot project in partnership with West Lothian Council.
