Transport Scheme

 

Christ Church Stamford Community Transport Scheme provides a service for people who are unable to use, or have difficulty with access to public transport. Our aim is to help people with journeys which they may otherwise be unable to make. Journeys can be for medical appointments, local trips for shopping or seeing a friend, attending community activities.  We offer a personal, door to door service with our helpful team of volunteer drivers.   Sandy Jackson, the Scheme Manager and a small team of office co-coordinators run a telephone booking service 50 weeks of the year, Monday to Friday between 9am and 1pm on 01780 482380.   The scheme is non-profit making and governed by Christ Church PCC.

To use the scheme membership is required. Individual membership is £12 per year and £25 for group membership. A person or group must be unable to make their journey by public transport or other means. Reasons for eligibility might include geographical remoteness, a lack of public transport, disability, ill health or for anyone who needs supported travel. For a membership form or to book a car, please call us on 01780 482380 or email  transportscheme@christchurchstamford.com

Our 16 seater wheelchair accessible minibus enables us to accommodate groups, disabled passengers and people with wheelchairs.
