Community Transport

Car_and_Driver 02One of the most popular services offered by Evesham Volunteer Centre is the community transport scheme, with around 50 drivers offering their services. This is a scheme for people who don’t have access to public transport and who have no other means of getting to places on their own.

Payment for Transport

A sliding fare scale is applicable for all journeys and an approximation of the cost can be given at the time of booking.

An administration charge of £2 is payable on all bookings in addition to the fare. Fares should be paid in cash at the end of each journey – cheques cannot be accepted.

Should you need to take an escort with you, they travel free of charge.

If you wish to make a donation towards our services our drivers can accept this via one of our donations envelopes. This will be brought into the office along with your fare.

Residents can call the Transport Manager on 01386 45035 to discuss criteria or to make appointments. The office also welcomes people to visit the Volunteer Centre at The Lodge, rear of Dresden House, Brick Kiln Street, Evesham, to ask queries and talk through their needs for transport.
