Community Car Scheme
Bridges has a brand new car scheme. The service has been set up to provide friendly, flexible transport for people who have difficulty accessing public transport or face barriers using taxi services or existing community transport services. The car scheme uses voluntary drivers and admin staff so we have to make a charge to cover petrol and other expenses. We work closely with the Bridges Community Connections Befriending Project but the car scheme is a separate entity so that we can also cater for different types of journeys-for example a trip to the doctor. Our drivers, who are fully registered, are matched up with clients to make the journey as pleasant and efficient as possible.
This is a new scheme and we are still building up a base of volunteer drivers and clients. If you have any time to spare and would like to become a volunteer driver or if you would like to use the scheme, then ring Gill Jones or Kate Rees on 07557 008743. Leave a message if there is no answer and we will get back to you.
Monmouth Dial-A-Ride is a local transport service run by Bridges and Monmouthshire County Council. The service is available Mondays and Thursdays, picking up between 9am and 5pm. We have a fully accessible mini bus equipped with a low floor capable of transporting wheelchairs and seated passengers alike.
