Volunteer Action - Oundle Volunteer Car Scheme

Type of service:
Transport
Address:
Fletton House, Oundle, Northamptonshire PE8 4JA
Telephone number:
01832 275433
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.

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. The passenger then pays the driver for any trips - this is calculated on mileage.

Services are often subsidised by Northamptonshire County Council. See Northamptonshire Highways for details
