What is the Community Transport Scheme?
The scheme is run by local co-ordinators who have a team of volunteer drivers from across North Herts and Stevenage
who use their own cars in their free time.
All of our drivers are paid a mileage rate to cover the distance they travel.
The scheme has public liability insurance and all drivers are DBS checked.
It has become increasingly important that we look to other revenue streams to ensure that our Community Transport scheme can continue to run to the high standard that it currently does. Following a comprehensive review of our scheme, we have now introduced an annual Service Fee of £15 per service user. This payment will prove to be hugely beneficial to the service. It will contribute to the core costs of the service and it would also allow us to achieve much more, including providing better training and recognition opportunities for our Volunteer Drivers.
