Wheels in Motion


Wheels in Motion is a 5-year project to develop community transport services in the rural parts of Bedford Borough, funded by the Big Lottery Fund.

Membership of Wheels in Motion costs £30 for the first year (valid from April to March each year), and £20 annually thereafter.

Our enquiries line (01234 834933) is open from 9:00am to 4:00pm Monday’s to Friday’s.

Dial a Ride

Services are now available Monday-Friday, from 8:30am to 4:30pm using paid drivers. Fares start at £3.50 and rise to £6.00 for longer trips (may be subject to change). All drivers are DBS checked and have MIDAS and PATS training.

We use specially adapted vehicles with the ability to carry wheelchairs or to provide a traditional 5 seated car layout. You can use this service for all kinds of journeys such as shopping, visit friends or relatives, for work, recreational or educational purposes.

We take bookings up to a week in advance and no less than two days before you travel.

In some cases local volunteers use their own cars to help members of the scheme to travel around. All volunteers are DBS checked and trained before they arrive at your door to take you safely to your destination. The charge for this service is as detailed above.

This service is subject to volunteer availability so we ask for as much notice as possible when booking a Community Car journey.

If you wish to volunteer for the scheme we will be glad to hear from you.
