As with any other concessionary travel scheme an assessment will be required and the relevant eligibility criteria will be applied.

Joint Statement from LB Brent & Brent CT

Dear CCS users,

Please note that in order to ensure that LB Brent obtains the best quality and value in services it procures, the CCS service is currently out to competitive tender. This process will conclude in August 2015. You will be informed in good time by the London Borough of Brent if there are any changes to the service as a result of this. For this reason, based on the possible upcoming changes no advance bookings will be taken by BCT for 1st September 2015 and onwards.



11 May 2015

From the 11th of June the following changes will be made to how you can access the BCT Community Car Scheme:


  • In order to allow all users equal access to the service all users will be allocated maximum of 10 journeys (5 return trips) per month. The trip allowance can be rolled over from one month to the next but cannot be rolled over to a third month.

  • You can make up to 2 short notice cancellations per year.Any additional cancellations will be deducted from your trip allowance. A round trip will only count as one cancelled trip.

  • Reasons for cancellations and times of cancellations will be monitored and if they are due to the CCS car arriving more than 15 minutes late then you will not be penalised for this. Please assist us by completing the cancellation form if the driver asks you to.

  • The application for CCS will be made via the LB Brent Concessionary Travel Team. Through this CCS users can be made aware of all the transport options that are available to them. Also, all registered CCS users will be seen by the LB Brent Concessionary Travel Team over the next six months to ensure that they are able to access all transport options that they are eligible to receive.

  • All other conditions of the service remain the same.

    If you feel that the journey limit will stop you accessing some of your community services then please contact the Customers Services team by phone on 020 937 4300 or by e-mail:customer.services@brent.gov.uk for an assessment of your needs.
