Community Transport Scheme

This is a Community Transport service run by the Botesdale and Rickinghall Good Neighbour Scheme on behalf of Suffolk County Council, which sponsors the service. It is also known as 'Wheels within Wheels'. The scheme provides door to door transport for those unable to use public transport and who are without the use of a car.

There is provision for wheelchair users.

The specially adapted vehicle can accommodate 8 passengers or 7 passengers plus one wheelchair and is available for shopping trips, visits to the doctor or hospital, transport to and from a railway station, for club outings or just for visiting friends.

As a contribution towards operating costs, the vehicle is charged at a fixed rate per mile travelled, measured from base, irrespective of the number of passengers. The service is operated by a team of unpaid, volunteer drivers and each journey is dependent upon a volunteer driver being available.

To use the Community Transport service and for more information please ring: Mr G Lawrence on 01379 897 109.

An answer phone is always available on this number. Early booking is recommended.
