Transport

What does it do?

Don’t have your own transport? Struggle to use public transport?

We may be able to help! We operate a volunteer transport scheme from Monday to Friday, covering Wantage, Grove and outlying villages. We drive clients to Drs, hospitals, shops, to visit friends, and more! There is a charge for using the transport scheme and you must call to book in advance.

Who it is for?

The Independent Advice Centre in Wantage provides a range of services to the people of Wantage, Grove and District.

Where it is available?

Local service (Vale of White Horse).

What it costs:

Typical fares (at current prices) include – Wantage to Mably Way surgery £4.50, Wantage to JR hospital £21 *.

Are you receiving Income Support or Pension Credit Guarantee? If so, we may be able to claim the cost of a hospital journey directly from the hospital. Please note that for hospital trips, the driver will normally wait up to 2 hours. Trips of longer duration (eg day surgery) will be charged as 2 trips.

* Please note that a small proportion of the fare charged is used to cover the administration costs of the scheme.
