Dial-a-Ride Scheme (Shrewsbury)

Description:

Shrewsbury Dial-a-Ride is a fully accessible transport service operating within a ten mile radius of Shrewsbury town centre.

If you do not have the use of a car or you find it difficult or even impossible to use public transport, then this is the service for you.

Shrewsbury Dial-a-Ride operates as a membership service.  

For individuals there is an annual membership fee of £20 to join, and once you are a member, each trip costs £2 (with a bus pass) or £3.50 (without a bus pass).  A trip is one-way, so a return would be £4 (with a bus pass) or £7 (without a bus pass).

Group membership is also available for clubs or societies who would find it useful to hire a bus for outings.  Joining as a group costs £30 per year, and then each trip is calculated at a rate per mile.

The Dial-a-Ride service:

  • operates Monday to Friday: 8.45am to 3.30pm;
  • is able to help people with mobility difficulties, both registered and temporarily disabled;
  • provides a friendly door-to-door service;
  • requires all journeys to be booked in advance;
  • offers a priority booking service for journeys required for medical purposes;
  • requires members to be flexible about all non-urgent journey times; and
  • ensures that all drivers are fully trained and CRB checked.

Dial-a-Ride also provides a regular programme of Sunday lunches.
