We provide community transport for our members and operate as an independent Rural Community Transport Partnership (RCTP) providing safe, affordable, flexible and accessible transport service; which is responsive to the needs of members. Since 2004 DDAT has traded under the name of Down Community Transport (DCT). DDAT has a combined area of benefit that covers the former council areas of Down District, Ards and North Down, with its head office near Downpatrick and a vehicle bases Portaferry.

In November 2015 DDAT became a registered charity with the Charity Commission for NI (NIC 103843).

Membership is renewable each year and runs from 1st April until 31st March. It costs £10 for individuals and £25 for Groups. New members need to als pay a £10 registration fee.
