HcL Transport – Service Update
Our Dial-A-Bus services (which take people with mobility challenges to local shopping centres / supermarkets) are sadly suspended at this time. Of course, in the current situation, the members of your community that would use this service are predominantly in isolation / shielding
Our Dial-A-Ride service (which takes people with mobility challenges to any destination of their choice) is running a limited service during the current situation. We are still taking passengers with mobility challenges to essential medical appointments. We will, where we can, provide other supported travel within government guidelines. For example if an elderly person or someone with a disability needs to attend a funeral we will try to support these requests.
