Community and voluntary schemes
These are one of the most flexible forms of transport. There are currently several schemes operating across the county.
The schemes run alongside existing public transport. To maintain public services you should always try to use them wherever possible.
Please note: There are no specific booking times for any of the voluntary schemes listed. If a volunteer driver is available they will offer you transport.
