Welcome to

Daventry Area Community Transport (DACT)

What is DACT?         DACT is a Registered Charity, No:-  1170448

Daventry Area Community Transport (DACT) was set up in 1993 to provide community transport services to the Daventry District. This is quite a challenge as the Daventry District covers 267 Square miles and is the largest district in the county with 78 rural villages as well as the market town or Daventry.

We are a charitable organisation wholly supported by grants, donations and the dedication of our volunteers. Consequently, we are able to provide our transport services at costs substantially less than most alternative forms of fare paying transport.

Community transport schemes vary across the country but the basic philosophy is the same, which is to provide transport services to those individuals or groups in the community that need support.

Community Transport can provide door-to-door transport to people in local communities who can't use mainstream public transport allowing them to access work, training and social activities.
