South Somerset Community Accessible Transport provides a demand responsive transport service for the area around Bruton, Castle Cary and Wincanton. It is there to help people who are unable to use a normal bus route due to mobility difficulties.
Since the pandemic they have a severe shortage of drivers and it is proving very difficult to book transport to help some of our local residents.
If you are a driver would you consider joining their team: Volunteer ‘social drivers’ use their own vehicles and are paid 50p per mile remuneration for any trips that they undertake on behalf of the scheme. You only accept a task if it fits within your schedule.
The Scheme is also currently recruiting minibus drivers. This is a paid role and they will cover full costs of training. Hours to suit your availability.
For full details of how you can help, please ring them directly on 01963 33864 and ask to speak to Mike Rowlands or Jayne McDougal.
