Community Car Schemes

Community Car Schemes

Community Car Schemes are voluntary schemes. Volunteer drivers and their cars provide a taxi-style, door-to-door service for residents who do not have access to their own or public transport.

Transport can be provided for health appointments and other essential journeys.

If you are interested in running a Car Scheme where you live we have put together a Car Scheme Toolkit to answer your questions and to help you set it up. It includes a draft constitution and rules, and a handbook for volunteer drivers. You can download a copy below or contact us at transport@somerset.gov.uk and we will send you a copy.
