Hoppa aims to improve rural transportation services in Waverley Borough by acquiring new wheel-chair and push-chair accessible minibuses. We provide door-to-door transport for anyone unable to access ordinary transport for any reason. But some of our buses are quite old now and need replacing!

Loneliness and isolation are current problems and present growing challenges as demonstrated by demographic forecasts and other research. A recent study of 1,000 adults over the age of 65 shows that 55% in Surrey often feel lonely particularly when they are home alone. Waverley's rural and rural related population is high at 64.6%. The number of pensioner households is forecast to rise by more than 40% within 25 years; households with people over 85 years old will more than double.
Hoppa's main activity is the provision of affordable, supportive and accessible transportation services to (any) people who are unable to access ordinary transport for any reason. Community transport services particularly empower older and disabled people to achieve better social, health and economic outcomes by supporting their continued independence and mobility. Hoppa takes them everywhere they want to go: grocery stores, hospitals, clinics, day care centres, etc.
