DRAFT Vision
• Cornwall’s Integrated Transport Unit (ITU) will be a one
stop shop for passenger transport. It will bring together
transport services delivered by a range of providers across
Cornwall for travel by taxi, minibus or service bus. Through
working with the public sector, private sector and third
sector, the ITU will provide the most efficient transport
services possible for the community of Cornwall ensuring as
much of the budgets as possible are expended on front line
services, not on administration. The ITU will be the single
point of contact for customers and staff of Cornwall Council
and patients and staff of Royal Cornwall Hospital for the
provision of passenger transport services and general travel
What will this mean?
• Easier interface for customers
• Easier system for staff requesting transport
• More joint working between Cornwall Council and
health partners
• Improved contracts management with providers
• Savings from better use of existing vehicle miles

• Understand what we commission
