Royston Community Transport

Who can use the service?

The scheme is aimed at groups or individuals who are unable to use conventional public transport for reasons of age, frailty, impaired mobility or the lack of public transport. Our minibuses and MPVs are suitable for wheelchair users who cannot transfer to a car.

 

Where can I go?

The service can be used for journeys to:

Hospitals for appointments, admissions or visits
Health care appointments
Day Centres
Specialist Needs clubs
Social purposes
Shopping

 

How much does it cost?

For journeys in volunteer drivers' own vehicles, passengers make a contribution of sixty pence (60p) per mile travelled by the driver, confirmed at the time of booking.  We do our best to allocate a driver close to you to keep the cost as low as possible.  This is paid to the driver at the end of the journey.

The minimum charge is £6.00 per journey of ten miles or fewer.

Journeys in the minibuses and MPVs are charged at a higher rate, confirmed at time of booking.

 

How can I arrange a journey?

To find out more about the scheme or to arrange a journey, contact the co-ordinator on 01763 245228 between 9am and 3pm, Monday to Friday.

​When booking a journey we would prefer at least THREE working days' notice, unless it is an emergency, when we will always try to help. If the telephone is unstaffed a recorded message will ask you to leave your name and telephone number; the co-ordinator will call you back as soon as possible. Please note that a journey cannot be booked via this website and a journey is NOT booked until confirmed by a co-ordinator.

We reserve the right to decline any journey request.
