Ring and Ride

What does it do?

What is Ring and Ride?The freedom to get around independently is a fundamental part of everyday life that most people often take for granted. But for a significant section of the community this freedom is often denied because not all can use or have great difficulty using conventional public transport services. Ring and Ride was established to help fill this gap by providing a fully accessible, door-to-door bus service for people whose circumstances limit their personal mobility. The Mission of Ring and RideThe mission of Ring and Ride is to increase the social well-being of all the people of the West Midlands who find it difficult or impossible to use conventional public transport through being recognised by our stakeholders as the provider of first choice in meeting their accessible transport needs.
