Community transport

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

Voluntary car schemes can take residents to hospital appointments, doctors, dentists and chiropodists. Some will also go to leisure facilities or the shops.


The 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.
