Dial a Ride is a door to door social car scheme for those living in the Hinckley & Bosworth area. If you don’t have a car of your own or have difficulty using public transport, the scheme can help take you to health/hospital appointments, social events/lunch clubs, visiting relatives/friends, shopping, hairdressers, leisure centre or somewhere you’d like to visit. Just ask and we will do our best to help.
We have a bank of volunteer drivers who use their own cars for these journeys so please give us at least 2/3 working days notice before you’d like to travel and we’ll do our best to arrange it. We can’t always guarantee a volunteer will be available so the more notice you give us the better (up to 3 weeks in advance).
If you’d like to bring an escort or have any special equipment such as a folding walking frame or wheelchair, please let us know when you book your journey.
