What to expect then:
The Co-ordinator will send you an application form to register and also provide details of suggested donation. Once you have returned the application form, you should ring the Co-ordinator to make a booking. The Co-ordinator will contact an available driver to book your journey and ring you to tell you the name of the driver and the arrival time at your home.
