Slinky Services – Demand Responsive Transport

Slinky Services – Demand Responsive Transport

What is Slinky?

Slinky is an accessible bus service for people who can’t use conventional transport.

The service is for things like getting to local health appointments, visiting friends and relatives, going shopping and as a link to other public transport.

You can use the Slinky bus if you:

  • Do not have your own transport
  • Do not have access to a public bus service
  • Have a disability which means you cannot use public transport

Parents with young children, teenagers, students, the elderly, retired people and people with disabilities could all be eligible to use the Slinky service.

If you are eligible you will first need to register as a member of the scheme. You must fill in a registration form and return it to the booking office before you use the service for the first time.

You can then book a journey by contacting your booking office at least 24 hours before you want to travel. Trips can be booked up to two weeks in advance.

For journeys up to 3 miles
Single: £2.50
Return: £4

For journeys over 3 miles
Single: £3.50
Return: £5

There is a 50% fare for English National Concessionary Travel Scheme passes on all SLINKY services within Somerset. You will need to show your pass every time you travel.

Half fares will be:

£1.30 for a single journey up to 3 miles – £2.00 return

£1.80 for a single journey over 3 miles – £2.50 return

 

Somerset Student County Tickets are also valid on Slinky services.
