How we help Our services Dial a Ride Do you find it difficult to use public transport?If so, Access Plymouth may have the perfect solution Dial-A-Ride is a door to door transport service for anywhere within Plymouth for elderly and disabled residents. The service is available to Plymouth residents who are eligible for a concessionary bus pass, but struggle to access the bus service - this may be due to the distance they operate from your home, physical difficulties in boarding the bus or there is simply not a bus to where you want to go. Dial-A-Ride provides a door to door service between any two points anywhere within the Plymouth city boundary, with dedicated drivers who can help passengers on and off the bus and to and from your front door. The service operates on Mondays to Fridays except Bank Holidays and the Christmas Period from 9:15 am until 4:15 pm and can be booked up to a week in advance, but no later than the day before you wish to travel. All bookings must be made before 2pm Our buses also have a space for one wheelchair. All wheelchairs must be checked by our drivers. This needs to be done before you travel with us for the first time so you will need to book an appointment to do this. If you change your chair we will need to check your new equipment. All equipment must be re-checked annually. Customers who travel in a wheelchair should normally travel with someone to assist them as the drivers can only secure your chair on the bus and are not able to push you to and from the buses. All assistants travel for free.
