Community Transport

Community car scheme

The community car scheme, affectionately known as the community taxi, helps residents of Droitwich Spa and the surrounding rural areas, who cannot use conventional public transport or they do not have access to an alternative method of travelling due to their age, mobility difficulties or a disability.

This scheme is delivered by volunteers drivers who provide door to door transport either in a car or a wheelchair adapted vehicle.

It provides transport for doctors, hospital appointments, dentist, opticians, day centres, social activities, shopping or visiting friends and family.

You must register for the service and bookings need to be made with at least two working days notice. The cost of the scheme is based on the miles travelled whilst you are in the vehicle and any passengers with a valid concessionary bus pass will receive a subsidised fare.
