Some people find it difficult to use public transport due to their disability or mobility problems. Community transport offers a number of different ways for people who would otherwise be unable to get out and about to visit shops and other local amenities.
For people who are unable to access conventional public transport and qualify for the English National Concessionary Travel Scheme, Swindon Borough Council offers concessionary travel vouchers. These can be used for travel on Swindon Dial A Ride. Those people who use a wheelchair or walking frame can use the vouchers with hackney carriage or private hire vehicles that participate in the scheme.
A list of operators that accept travel vouchers is available from the concessionary bus pass and travel vouchers pages.
