Car Scheme PlusA door to door chauffeur service by Bassetlaw volunteers
What does it do?
If you want to get out and about but have difficulty using public transport, then Car Scheme Plus could be the answer.
A Peugeot Expert vehicle has been fully adapted for wheelchair users and offers a door to door service for people of all ages.
For an affordable fare you can travel in safety and comfort to make those important appointments, get to work or simply socialize with friends.
The vehicle is able to carry a mobility scooter and up to 3 passengers. It is also fitted with a Turney Seat that comes right out of the car enabling the passenger to sit on and be lifted into the vehicle, this is particularly useful for people with limited mobility.
Who it is for?
- People living in Bassetlaw who are registered with Car Scheme Plus through Bassetlaw Action Centre
- People who are unable to use public transport due to mobility difficulties
- Anyone who does not have access to a local public transport service
