Transport for Individuals

We offer three main Door 2 Door services for individuals: Shopper Bus, City Ride and Community Car Scheme.

Shopper Bus and City Ride are delivered using our fleet of fully accessible minibuses.  The minibuses provide transport for people who find it very difficult or impossible to use public transport.  Our drivers provide assistance from your doorstep to the vehicle and ensure that you travel securely and safely.  Please note that if you need to travel in your wheelchair, your wheelchair must be a model which has been crash-tested. Non crash-tested models of wheelchair may be carried folded, but you must transfer to a seat during travel. We can carry certain models of mobility scooter, but you cannot remain on the scooter during boarding or alighting and must travel in a seat. Please contact us for further details.

To use any or all of our services you will first need to register with us.  You only have to register once and this will entitle you to use any of our services for individuals.  You can do this by completing our online form, downloading a form to print at home or you can contact us by phone and we will send you a form in the post.

Once we have received your application, we will review it and then, providing you are eligible to use the services, we will post you a welcome pack with further information on how to make a booking and a confirmation document for you to sign and return.

Our Shopper Bus services provide transport from your local area to a local supermarket.  Shopper Buses operate from Monday to Friday and times and destinations vary according to the area served.

You pay a flat fare and may bring a companion to travel with you if you need their assistance with your shopping. They will also need to pay the fare. You can make bookings up to seven days in advance and the booking line is open Monday to Friday between 09.00 and 12.30 or up to 12.30pm on the day before you wish to travel. Please be aware that there is a high demand for our Shopper Bus service and the more notice you can give us the more likely it is that we will be able to accept your booking. Please contact us for more information about Shopper Buses in your area.

Our City Ride service provides door-to-door services for individuals.  It operates from Monday to Friday, 08.30 to 16.30.  You can travel anywhere in the City of Sheffield for whatever reason you choose. City Ride fares are similar to what you would expect to pay for a mainstream bus journey. You can make bookings up to seven days in advance and the booking line is open Monday to Friday between 09.00 and 12.30.  As demand for this service is very high, you may normally only book a maximum of two journeys each week.  and the more notice you can give us the more likely it is that we will be able to accept your booking.

Our booking line is available from Monday to Friday from 9am to 12.30pm.

Our Community Car Scheme is operated by volunteers who drive their own cars to provide transport for registered passengers.  This service is suitable for a wide range of activities, including travel to lunch clubs, hospital visiting, adult education classes, shopping, and leisure or simply visiting friends. A low mileage charge is made to cover costs.

Most journeys that are undertaken on the Community Car Scheme are fairly local, but we can undertake longer journeys if required, for example to visit relatives.  Please book a few days in advance of your journey to enable us to find a volunteer driver.
