Dial a ride and community and voluntary transport schemes
These services use smaller vehicles such as minibuses. They have some things in common with bus services, such as the fare charging, but only operate when booked.
You can travel anywhere within each service operating area. If you are travelling further you can connect with the local bus or train service.
Who can use the service?
Anyone living within the operating area who cannot access a local bus service. They may use this for any purpose.
In most cases the services pick up from a home address, if it is safe and practical to do so. It can also return passengers with a disability or those living in more isolated locations to their home address.
