Dial-a-Rides are scheduled bus runs that pick you up at your door and take you to a specific destination; ideal for shopping, appointments, social visits etc.
You need to be a member of Adapt (NE) to use Dial-a-Ride, which costs just £4.00 per year. You can print off and return the membership form here or pick one up on the bus, fill it in and return it with your yearly membership fee via our drivers.
Places are booked on Dial-a-Ride runs by ringing us on 01434 600599 by no later that midday on the working day before the day you wish to travel (i.e. before midday on Friday for a Monday run, or before midday Wednesday for a Thursday run).
Our drivers are happy to help you carry your shopping to your door if needed, but we ask that you bear in mind the amount of space on the bus in terms of numbers of shopping bags!
