Transport Service -
Becoming A Driver
SERVE transport assists elderly and disabled people to travel
to medically related appointments, e.g. the doctor, hospital, dentist and
chiropodist. A SERVE volunteer driver collects the client from their home,
takes them to their medical appointment, and returns them home. A small
charge is made to cover petrol costs. We are happy to accept the travel
tokens issued by East Northants District Council. We can also help those who
are housebound with their shopping.
To use our transport service you must first register with us. Registration
costs £5 a year. The registration cost is necessary to cover administration
costs and provide you with a fast and efficient service. If you do not wish
to register (If you only make one or two journeys a year) then a 50p
administration fee will apply per journey. However registered users will be
given priority over those who have not registered when booking journeys. For more information about
registering with the SERVE Transport Service or for an application form
please visit or call the Main Office.
We can transport people from Rushden, Higham Ferrers, Raunds, Stanwick,
Irthlingborough, Podington, Wymington, Yieldon and Hinwick within these
towns or between these towns. We can also provide transport for long
distance journeys i.e. Kettering, Northampton and Leicester.
Please ensure to book your journey in plenty of time. Many journeys can
often not be arranged at short notice. Also if you no longer require
transport please cancel your booking as soon as possible.
