Dial-a-Ride in Fareham & Gosport
What is Dial-a-Ride?
Dial-a-Ride is an easy access, door-to-door transport service using specially adapted vehicles, equipped to carry passengers with or without wheelchairs. All vehicles are fully accessible with a lift.
Who can use Dial-a-Ride?
Dial-a-Ride can be used by residents of the boroughs of Fareham and Gosport who have difficulty or discomfort in using public transport for any reason. The reason can be long or short-term.
What can Dial-a-Ride be used for?
Dial-a-Ride trips can be used to travel anywhere and for any reason within the boroughs of Fareham and Gosport, except for journeys to hospital appointments, day centres or your GP. These trips should be arranged by the hospital, Voluntary Car Scheme, Social Services or your doctor. We cannot promise to have a vehicle free every time you want to go out as we only have a limited number of vehicles, but we will always do our best to help.
When is Dial-a-Ride available?
Dial-a-Ride trips run from 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday. If you can be flexible about when you travel, it really helps us to make good use of the service. You can book up to two trips a week.
