The Parish Council are pleased to announce that volunteer drivers are available for appointments booked through Royston and District Community Transport.  The drivers are from the Eversdens and will take residents from the Eversdens to their appointments if they are available.

Royston & District Community Transport are a registered charity offering door to door transport for local people who need transport for trips to hospital, GPs, dental appointments and day centres, who are unable to drive themselves or use public transport due to age, frailty, impaired mobility, or do not have the use of a car.

How much does it cost?
For journeys in volunteer drivers’ own vehicles, passengers make a contribution of sixty pence (60p) per mile travelled by the driver, confirmed at the time of booking.  We do our best to allocate a driver close to you to keep the cost as low as possible.  This is paid to the driver at the end of the journey.

The minimum charge is £6.00 per journey of ten miles or fewer.

Journeys in the minibuses and MPVs are charged at a higher rate, confirmed at time of booking.

How can I arrange a journey?

To find out more about the scheme or to arrange a journey, contact the co-ordinator on

01763 245228

between 9am and 3pm, Monday to Friday.

When booking a journey we would prefer at least THREE working days’ notice, unless it is an emergency, when we will always try to help. If the telephone is unstaffed a recorded message will ask you to leave your name and telephone number; the co-ordinator will call you back as soon as possible. Please note that a journey is NOT booked until confirmed by a co-ordinator.

We reserve the right to decline any journey request.
