Handybus Services Beyond Newbury & Thatcham
What is a Handybus?
Handy Buses provide regular transport for elderly and disabled people on shopping trips and visits to clubs as well as one-off trips and excursions where regular commitments permit.
Am I eligible to use the Handybus?
If you have limited mobility, can’t manage the buses or don’t have a bus service or a stop near you, but need to get to:
- day centre
- leisure venue
- the shops
- holiday accommodation
then you could be eligible. However, places are limited and always in demand, you are not guaranteed a seat.
How much does it cost?
In general, the cost per trip depends on the distance travelled.
How much notice do I need to give?
Please give at least 3 – 4 days notice prior to a journey. In the case of long-distance journeys at least a week’s notice is preferable.
