May I please introduce myself to you, my name is Vince Carey and I am the transport Manager for Somerset County Council covering the Taunton and Wellington area. The reason I am contacting you today is, I wish to raise awareness of the Dial a Ride service which, we offer in your area and I was hoping you could display the attached leaflet in your parish notice boards, or if a member of your community asks about local transport you could advise them of the service we offer?


The brief details of the service we provide is:

Monday to Friday 08:30am to 16:30pm, operating in the Taunton and Wellington area using a fleet of 16 seater minibuses. We provide a door to door service for passengers for various reasons including medical appointments, shopping, leisure and social events. Our buses are wheelchair friendly and our drivers are willing to lend an arm to assist the passengers to board the bus. Fares vary between £2 to £6 return with a bus pass, but we can advise passengers of the cost when they make a booking.


Now that we are now getting back to a sense of normality, I would like to raise our profile amongst the community and hopefully we can help them to start to get out and about again after the last 18 months we have been through.


Our booking line number is, 01823 331 226, or my team and I are happy to answer any queries on the below details and thank you in advance for your help.
