Our community bus service aims to help people get out and about. Whether it's to go shopping, get involved in social activities or enjoy one of the many day trips organised by us and other local organisations.
The buses are equipped for people who find it difficult using public transport. All our buses have a tail-lift for wheelchairs and walking frames and our drivers are always happy to help people get on and off the bus.
Our door-to-door bus service to local supermarkets for older and disabled residents and those who have difficulty getting around.
We run a regular shopper hopper service for local residents to different supermarkets. When you use this service we will collect and return you direct to your own home. When you have finished shopping our drivers will help you along with your bags onto the bus.
This service costs just £3 per person for a return journey.
Similar to the Shopper Hopper, the Lunch Hopper provides transport to three lunch clubs where meals are provided at a reasonable cost.
Our Community Buses can be used for the many day trips organised throughout the year. Day trips include trips to the seaside, to see a show in London and Christmas shopping. Day trips are organised through our sheltered housing schemes, community groups and charities.
All you need to do is telephone 01707 357 696 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know which service you require and when you need to book it for. Fares are payable on the day to the driver (if applicable).
Each vehicle is taxed, has a current MOT and is fully insured. We carry out safety checks on a daily basis to ensure there are not any problems with the vehicles before setting off.
In the unlikely event that the bus you have booked need to be cancelled, we will contact you to let you know and explain why the cancellation has occurred.
All of our drivers carry official identification at all times, will have been assessed by Herts County Council and will have a Road Safety Certificate of Confidence. They will prioritise the safety of their passengers at all time, which includes safely securing wheelchairs and walking aids before a journey.
To help us deliver a safe and reliable service, we ask that all passengers be ready to travel and the collection times and locations agreed. It is essential that you wear a seatbelt, remain seated and do not engage in conversation with the driver which he/she is driving.
There is a strict no smoking policy on all of our vehicles.
