Cambridge United and Dial-a-Ride have joined forces to offer supporters who have difficulty using public transport because of disability, infirmity, or age, the opportunity to come to the Abbey Stadium on Matchdays for £3 a trip…
The group is celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2021 and is a non-profit organisation which provides local transport services via a Membership Scheme that are safe, affordable, and accessible to community groups and to individuals who have difficulty in accessing public transport. It offers this service on week days in the City of Cambridge and the villages immediately bordering the city
- Who can use Cambridge Dial-a-Ride?
Dial a Ride offer services to anybody within the area who is over 16 years old and has difficulty using public transport because of disability, infirmity, or age.
Cambridge Dial-a-Ride’s operating licence requires us to function as a membership organisation. If you are interested in what they offer, please begin by applying for membership and to specify what particular difficulties we can help you overcome.
- What happens if I need help?
Cambridge Dial-a-ride minibuses are equipped to make it easier for everybody to use them. All buses have lifts for wheelchair users and those who have difficulty using steps.
The drivers stop as near as possible to your front door so that you can wait for us in the comfort and safety of your home. The drivers will also help to get you safely to and from your bus, and they are happy to carry any bags you may want to take with you. You only have to let the driver know what assistance you need.
- Can I bring a friend?
You may bring a friend or family member as your official escort, and we charge an additional fare of £5.00 for them. Guide dogs and help dogs are obviously also welcome and travel without charge, although other pets and animals are not normally carried.
- How do I apply for Cambridge Dial-a-Ride membership?
You or somebody on your behalf can contact Cambridge Dial-a-Ride to request an application form. Alternatively you can use the printable application form via the website which can be completed and returned to us at the address on the form.
Return the form to Cambridge Dial-a-Ride with the annual membership fee. We can then enrol you as a member of Cambridge Dial-a-Ride for twelve months.
