For people who can't use buses
You can use Dial-a-Ride if you are unable to use public transport for any reason. The reason can be long or short-term. All our buses are fully accessible with a lift. Wheelchair users are welcomed.
Helpers or Carers
If it is essential for you to be accompanied by a helper, they may travel with you free of charge. You will need to state this requirement on your registration form and explain why the helper is necessary.
When can you travel?
Trips run from 9am to 4pm Monday to Friday. If you can be flexible about when you travel it really helps to make good use of the service.
You can book up to two trips a week. If you need to cancel a trip, just let us know as soon as possible.
Anywhere in Fareham and Gosport
You can use Dial-a-Ride trips for shopping or social reasons within the boroughs of Fareham and Gosport.
Whilst the Dial-a-Ride service is not for Hospital or Clinic appointments, please do not hesitate to contact us as we may be able to help in other ways.
Door to Door
We will pick you up from your door at the arranged time. The drivers will always give you help with your shopping bags.
How much does it cost?
Membership is free. A small charge is made for the service similar to a bus fare. You pay the driver just as you would on a normal bus.
If you need help to get around the town centre we can drop you off at our Shopmobility centre.
Community Action Fareham also runs Fareham Shopmobility. They will bring a mobility scooter or power-chair to meet you at the bus.
For membership, to book a scooter or find out more call 01329 282929. This can also be arranged in Gosport.
Community Transport arranges a variety of days out. In the summer, for example, there are trips to the New Forest and local gardens. Ask us about Home Helps, Gardening and other support.
