Medibus and Dial a Ride

Dial a Ride in East Riding

What does it do?

Getting around in the rural areas is sometimes difficult at the best of times. This is even more of a problem if you live in a rural village and need to attend a hospital appointment or wish to visit a friend or relative in hospital. This can often mean relying on friends and relatives to provide transport which is not always convenient.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council's Medibus service provides a flexible home to hospital transport service. The service is funded by a Central Government Rural Bus Challenge Grant.

There are currently 7 Medibuses serving the East Riding of Yorkshire parishes. Operational days vary on each service so please contact the Medibus call centre for further details.

Once your booking has been accepted the driver will call you the night before to advise you of your approximate pickup time. Please be ready a few minutes before the time the driver gives you.

What to expect then:

Once your journey is booked, a courtesy call will be made to you the day before your appointment to give you an exact time that you will be picked up from home. Depending on distance to the hospital, this is usually no more than 1 hour or so before your appointment. After you have finished your appointment or visit to hospital, the driver will normally be back to take you home within 1 hour.
