Dial-a-Ride bus service in Bradford

What does it do?

AccessBus is a dial-a-ride bus service providing door-to-door local transport, seven days a week between 9am and 5pm.  

Owing to the high demand for the service, travel is restricted to local journeys only. Most trips are for shopping purposes, such as to the local supermarket or shopping centre, but we also provide a limited number of journeys for social purposes, local community centres, places of worship, visiting family and friends, etc.

It is unlikely that AccessBus will be able to cater for day and time-specific requests. To make best use of the vehicles, we serve certain areas on set days, allocating places to customers to travel on the day when the bus is in their area.

Who it is for?

It is of particular benefit to people who are unable to use standard bus services,  as the driver assists  passengers from door-to-door, including boarding and alighting. The buses are fully accessible, fitted with seatbelts and the most up-to-date wheelchair restraints.

Anyone of any age can register for AccessBus.
