If you are thinking about applying for the role of Community Transport Driver then you will be operating like a taxi except you will be working for a hospital, social services, schools etc. You will operate a similar service to a Taxi where you provide door to door drop offs but usually in this role it is to the elderly or transporting people to and from hospital appointments or children to and from school. You will usually be driving a van or a mini bus in this role but this will depend on how many people you are transporting at any one time.

Mrs Jane Smith
Application for the role of Community Transport Driver
I would like to apply for the role of Community Transport Driver which I have seen advertised in (where, when and any job reference).
I have been in a driving role for many years now helping to take school children on trips or to the local swimming pool for a coach company. I enjoy driving and I understand the importance of having your wits about you when you are driving people around especially children.
I have a full and clean driving licence and I take pride in having an exemplary track record when it comes to driving. I have excellent communication skills and enjoy working with others. I was very interested to see the role that you are advertising as I feel I have a kind and patient manner and will be able to help the elderly with places that they need to go to and help them on and off the mini bus and ensure that they can manage with their belongings etc.
I have enclosed my CV in application of this role. I am happy to answer any further questions that you may have. Please do not hesitate to contact me for any further information.
Thanking you in advance for taking the time to read my application.
