Welcome to WEALDLINK Community Transport
Serving the parts other buses cannot reach.
The WEALDLINK service is provided by NWCTP Ltd. a not for profit company, registered charity and approved provider of Community Transport for the North Wealden area.
Our aim is to provide accessible, safe and affordable transport for those who are vulnerable or disadvantaged through lack of appropriate transport, from all sections of the community across North Wealden and beyond, in order to combat social exclusion and increase independence.
Our services are funded by County, District, Parish, Town Councils, users and charitable donations.

SAVE YOUR COMMUNITY TRANSPORT
The Transport Select Committee has published its findings and recommendations on community transport and the Department for Transport’s proposed consultation this follows the submission of nearly 300 pieces of evidence and two oral evidence sessions.
The Transport Select Committee’s response makes it clear that they share the concerns of Community Transport Operators such as WEALDLINK.
The Transport Select Committee has confirmed that community transport is invaluable, safe, and for many, the only way to get to where they need to be.
It is now the responsibility of the DfT to consider this report in light of their consultation and their next steps in ensuring the viability of community transport. It is now up to them to not only consider how they can satisfy the European Commission but how public policy interventions can ensure community transport can thrive in all parts of the UK.
The next stage will be recommendations by the minister responsible in the new year followed by ratification by parliament.
ROUTE 262 EXTENDED TO HEATHFIELD
Following the withdrawal of the Seaford & District 231 Saturday service the 262 will be extended to Heathfield via Framfield until further notice.
