Ring & Ride Schemes

The Ring & Ride Bus

This is a 15-seater minibus which provides a door-to-door service with a professional driver who will help passengers on and off the bus, using a tail lift if necessary. Manual or electric wheelchairs or scooters can be accommodated in safety and comfort using tracking to secure them in place. All seats have seat-belts and must be worn.

Who can use the scheme?

Frail, elderly people or people with a disability who find public transport very difficult to use. Passengers may bring an escort. People living where there is no public transport and have no transport of their own.

How much will it cost?

Journeys to Crediton from other villages are 3.00 and within Crediton 2.00.

Charges are reviewed annually.
