WRCC Back & 4th are very excited to let you know about a brand new transport service coming soon to the rural areas of Rugby Borough.
Following our successful funding applications to Rugby Borough Council, Warwickshire County Council and Awards for All we are in the final stages of planning before lanching the service in October 2018.
How will it work?
The service will operate Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 2.30pm and provide transport from the rural villages into Rugby. The service will work on a ‘Dial a Ride’ basis and provide access to shopping facilities, social care venues such as lunch clubs, job clubs or simply to enable people to meet with friends over a coffee.
We will be using a minibus which has been adapted to provide easier access for those with mobility problems and can also accomodate wheelchair users. Passengers will need to pre-book their travel in advance and the minibus will collect from their home address and take them to their chosen destination.
We have divided the rural areas up in to 5 and each area will receive a service one day per week.
There will be a small charge for the service which we anticipate to be around £3.00 for a return journey.
We are now looking for feedback from residents about the types of venues in Rugby they would like to visit and in particular, which day they would like to go.
If you have any thoughts on this, or would like to register to receive further information please contact us on 01788 226000.
