    Community Car Scheme
    A scheme for people who are unable to use public transport to get to community facilities or medical appointments. This may be because of mobility problems or other special needs. The Car Scheme operates in Borehamwood and Potters Bar. A charge of 45 pence a mile is made for each journey to cover volunteer expenses. We have volunteer drivers who use their own cars. Folded wheelchairs can be taken in most cars, but passengers must be able to transfer from wheelchair to car.

    THREE WORKING DAYS notice is needed.

    ​Hertsmere Shopper Scheme is a door-to-door service for people with mobility problems who have difficulty using public transport, and want to go to their local supermarket. People are collected from their homes by an accessible minibus and taken to their local supermarket for about an hours shopping and then taken home. Charges from £4.00 return. The scheme operates in Borehamwood, Potters Bar, Bushey, Bushey Heath, Well End, Radlett and Shenley.

    Our minibus and driver are available for hire evenings and weekends to groups with older members or those with a disability.
