Community Transport Celebrates

Government donates a new Minibus for local people from the Community Minibus Fund

Hinckley & Bosworth Community Transport are delighted to announce that the Department of Transport has subsidised a brand-new Mercedes Benz minibus to support the essential service it provides within the community which is a clear indication that the Government acknowledges the value of community-based transport and is particularly proud that our long-established local community transport scheme has been singled out to continue its work to benefit local people. The dark blue “Sprinter” mini-bus has been adapted to be fully accessible for people who have mobility difficulties.  It has a capacity for 16 passengers or 15 and 1 wheelchair user and is available to groups for outings or lunch clubs and also for individuals for supermarket shopping.  If you spot it parked outside supermarkets or garden centres the driver may be able to show you the interior.  Otherwise, please ring 01455 250462 to learn more about how it can help you, your group or your relatives and friends.

Hinckley & Bosworth Community Transport also operates Dial-a-Ride, a social car scheme which is an important service to people who live in the Hinckley & Bosworth area.  Dial-a-Ride drivers are all volunteers who use their own cars (in return for a mileage repayment) to take elderly and less mobile people to G.Ps, hospital appointments or visits, the shops and hairdressers and many other essential outings.  At the moment, there are approximately 1200 people who use Dial-a-Ride and the demand for the service is continually growing.  There are many opportunities for people who have some time to spare no matter  how much or how little, to become a volunteer driver and help to provide the service which is both appreciated by the passengers and rewarding for the drivers.

More volunteer drivers are urgently needed to help Dial-a-Ride deliver its essential and expanding service to our local community.
