In partnership with North Yorks County Council, Nidderdale Plus are delighted to have taken responsibility for a new Community Car. Available to any Nidderdale resident who is without access to public or private transport, living in a rurally isolated location or needing door-to-door assistance, the Car can be pre-booked (at least 24 hours notice please) by ringing the Nidderdale Plus Office.
We have a small group of volunteer drivers who have passed a driver training course and disclosure and barring checks – they will assist with local journeys (to the doctor or dentist or local shops) or to Ripon market (Thursdays only, using the High School minibus) and to Harrogate (generally Mondays/Fridays).
All passengers pay a fare – concessions are available: prices will be advised on booking (based on mileage) – we are trying to maintain affordable fares so do ring us (01423 714953) for details.
Passengers were recently asked for their comments: ‘it’s a great service’, ‘drivers are very good and courteous’, it’s convenient and a really helpful local service!’ – do get in touch and tell us your travel needs – we will do our best to help!
