This service is managed by Nidderdale Plus and is available for any local resident who is unable to access public transport (often due to rural isolation) or who needs door-to-door assistance due to mobility or disability issues.
Journeys may be for such things as doctor or dentist appointments, shopping locally, for accessing other services or for joining social activities (coffee mornings etc).
Our drivers are volunteers who undertake driver training (MIDAS) and DBS checks.
To book the Community Car, ring Nidderdale Plus (01423 714953) and tell us when and where you want to travel. We will then try to obtain a volunteer driver for you and will advise you of the fare (based on mileage of your journey) – our fares are based on 45p per mile but we also operate a concessionary rate for those of bus pass age or in receipt of benefits. Call us and we can discuss details, according to your particular needs.
Volunteer drivers: if you would like to join our team of drivers, please contact Katy Penn at Nidderdale Plus – training will be provided and even small amounts of time offered can be of great assistance to the service.
Contact Katy Penn at Nidderdale Plus between 10am and 4pm Monday to Friday – 01423 714953 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
