Ring & Ride Schemes

The Ring & Ride Bus

This is a 15-seater minibus which provides a door-to-door service with a professional driver who will help passengers on and off the bus, using a tail lift if necessary. Manual or electric wheelchairs or scooters can be accommodated in safety and comfort using tracking to secure them in place. All seats have seat-belts.

Who can use the scheme?

Frail elderly people or people with a disability who find public transport very difficult to use. Passengers may bring an escort.

How much will it cost?

The flat return fare within Tiverton is 2.50. For other journeys please refer to our timetable on the right.

Charges are reviewed annually in June.
