The scheme is for people who find it difficult to use public transport either through age or a need for special assistance. It is aimed at helping people get to essential appointments such as Health Centres, Hospitals, Dentists, Chiropodists, Day Centres etc.
Where resources permit, shopping and social trips may also be possible. The scheme offers a return journey and you will not be charged for waiting time, which is up to a maximum of two hours. A longer wait e.g. a drop-off in the morning and collection in the afternoon, will mean a double charge.
There are charges to cover the cost of running the scheme and petrol mileage, these are:
- annual subscription of £10 (or £15 for a couple)
- £2 administration charge per trip
- 45p per mile
All volunteer drivers are DBS checked and insured, and a driver who is able to carry and assist with a wheelchair etc. can be arranged.
