Community transport offers an invaluable lifeline to many people who have difficulty using public transport because of their age, disability or where they live. It also provides opportunities for people to get out and about, with popular uses being to go to the doctors and dentists, shopping and visiting friends.
There are a number community transport schemes which exist in the Horsham District. Some schemes have fixed or semi fixed fares, while others just ask for a realistic contribution towards the cost of the journey. Voluntary car schemes can take residents to hospital appointments, doctors, dentists and chiropodists. Some will also go to leisure facilities or the shops.
The well known Dial-a-Ride scheme is a door to door transport service which operates using wheelchair accessible minibuses and can take people to a day centre, the dentist, shops or to visit a friend. The Community Minibus Associations provide a door to door regular service for local shopping, visits to towns and supermarkets, social outings and in support of community activities for residents in certain areas.
Details of all these schemes have now been collected together in one handy pocket sized guide which offers a one stop information point for anyone looking for transport help in the District. Information is included on the service offered by each scheme together with contact telephone numbers.
