Community Car Scheme - Travel Costs

Our Community Car scheme exists mainly to provide transport for hospital and other healthcare appointments. Other journeys may be provided at our discretion. To use this scheme you must be a member. So you need to fill out an *application form* and pay a 5 annual membership fee.

It is for people who do not qualify for hospital transport, who cannot drive themselves and do not have family and friends who are able to drive them to their appointment.

From 1st April 2015, the charge for all journeys will be 30p per mile, minimum charge is 3.00. The charge is based on the return journey from the passengers home (irrespective of whether the passenger returns in the car).
