Service description:
Voluntary car schemes operate with volunteer drivers using their own vehicles to take passengers to pre-booked destinations. These are often for medical appointments, but can also be for other reasons.

The schemes typically charge an annual membership fee. The passenger then pays the driver for any trips - this is calculated on mileage.

Passengers book a journey in advance with the scheme co-ordinator who matches up the travel requirement with the drivers available. Drivers collect passengers from their home, taking them to their appointment and returning them back home.

Services are often subsidised by Northamptonshire County Council.
