Bakewell & Eyam service users

Individual journeys

Our Ring and Ride aCTive travel service provides tailored transport for people who have difficulties, due to age, illness or restricted mobility or whose transport needs cannot be met by the existing public transport network.

Ring and Ride

The service is provided in partnership with Derbyshire County Council and provides a door-to-door service which helps people maintain their independence and quality of life.

Transport can be provided for health appointments including visits to clinics, dentists, opticians and health visits. Other destinations will be considered, for example, hairdressing appointments and visiting friends and family.

The service is provided by volunteers using their own cars or the Community Transport accessible vehicles when necessary for wheelchair users. A mileage-based charge will be applicable on all journeys under the scheme.

Please note that we're unable to transport people under 18 years of age or people with Alzheimer’s or Dementia unless they travel with a familiar escort or carer.

Bookings should be made as far in advance as possible – and by at least five working days ahead - although every effort will be made to accommodate late requests.

For further information or to make a booking, please call us on 01629 641920.
