Once people have registered with Community Links all they have to do is to phone the Community Links co-ordinator to book their journey. So that they can try to meet all requests for transport in the District, the co-ordinator will ask you to give 3 days notice, if at all possible. Please note that your journey time will need to be flexible to allow for the collection of other customers travelling on each route.
