Dial A Ride


Dial A Ride provides fully accessible, door to door transport for those who are either retired, have some form of disability or who have difficulty using other forms of transport.


Starting in 1983 as part of the Scarborough Council for Voluntary Services with one old, second hand minibus we have extensively developed our services in the area with a modern fleet of fully accessible, specialised vehicles.


Our 9 minibuses and MPV (click here to check out our fleet) have either hydraulic lifts or ramps as well as low steps and grab rails for ease of boarding.  We have recently taken delivery of the latest low floor minibus (photo below of the Mellor Tucana II) which allows even easier access.  Seats are fitted with all age seat belts which, for your own safety, we insist must be worn on all journeys.


If you are not sure if you are eligible, please contact the office and we will be happy to help you.


Dial A Ride is not part of the Health Authority or Social Services.  Although we receive some funding through grants, the rest of the income needed to keep the service going comes from the reasonable fares we charge and extensive fundraising.


With our in-house trainers and training facilities we can provide instruction for minibus drivers, car scheme drivers and passenger assistants for anyone involved in community transport.


We employ some paid drivers, but rely on our volunteer drivers and passenger escorts to keep Dial A Ride 'on the road'.  All our drivers, both paid and voluntary, receive training for driving minibuses (through MiDAS) and also receive training in first aid as well as many other areas of passenger safety, comfort and awareness.  Our friendly and helpful staff will give you the appropriate support and assistance during your journey.


As for when and where you can be taken?  That's pretty much anywhere and anytime you like and, more importantly, for any purpose you wish. We do have operating times, etc, but please use this 'frequently asked questions' link for a more in depth look at how Dial A Ride in our area works.  It's really quite straight forward and only a phone call away!
