What is Ring & Ride and can I use it?

Our Ring & Ride service provides friendly accessible transport for people of all ages & abilities who are unable to easily access public transport. To use Ring & Ride simply register your details with us initially and then pre-book your seat whenever you wish to join the bus. Where possible, we offer a “door-to-door” service and can accommodate passengers travelling in wheelchairs.

We are unable to carry mobility scooters, but we can take you to our Shop & Leisure Mobility Centre in Tiverton on request.
