Dial a Ride
The Dial-A-Ride service is operated by volunteer staff. It is available to anyone who cannot access conventional bus services because of where they live or mobility difficulties.
It is a local door to door transport service, using easy access minibuses with low steps, handrails and a lift for wheelchair access.
Dial-A-Ride services enable passengers to travel locally, for example to visit friends and relatives, or take a trip to the shops.
Dial-A-Ride services are driven by volunteers who have additional training to drive minibuses to a higher standard, to operate the lifts, and otherwise assist anyone with mobility difficulties.
Drivers give their time free of charge on a regular basis.
More drivers are always welcomed. If you would like to help with Dial-A-Ride or Wheels within Wheels please contact us.
