The Newark and Sherwood Door2Door car scheme is available to residents, from our area, who struggle to access or use forms of public transport. Journeys can be used to visit friends,community social events, regular medical appointments such as doctors and opticians or maybe just to go shopping. The scheme provides transport using our volunteer drivers (in their own vehicle) who will collect you from your home address.
In order to use the scheme and book a journey, you must first register with us and become an annual member.
Types of membership are:-
1. Single full membership which costs £40.00 per year
2. Joint same household membership which costs £45.00 per year
You can download a registration form here or contact us on 01636 611220 to request a form by post or to book a journey. Telephone lines are open 8-10 am, Monday to Friday and there is an answerphone outside of these hours.
Booking and paying for journey
Journey costs are calculated @45p per mile from the initial driver location and return.Each booking is subject to a £3.00 fee, all journey payments are to be made to the driver. We generally require 7 days’ notice to book a journey, although please give as much notice as possible.
We are always looking for more volunteer drivers in the Newark and Sherwood area. If you have any spare time and are interested in helping out, then please get in touch for an informal discussion with our scheme co-ordinator.
Door2Door reserves the right to refuse transport for any individual whose behaviour, either by word or actions, may be considered detrimental to the comfort and wellbeing of the driver and any passengers. Any verbal or physical abuse towards staff or volunteers will not be tolerated.
