The Independent Glenlivet and Inveravon News Group

Speyside Car Sharing Scheme

NHS ‘Local Highland’ Travel Scheme

Brochure

 

You are eligible to become a member of the Car Share Scheme if you live in Tomintoul, Glenlivet, Dufftown, Aberlour, Rothes, or the surrounding areas and you are elderly, infirm or disabled; have no form of private transport available to you and have difficulty using public transport.

Membership is free.

If in doubt give our friendly volunteer telephonists a ring and they will advise you.

Once you become a member we can help you with all sorts of journeys. Although we cannot undertake to do any journeys of a business/commercial nature we can help with health centre visits, hospital appointments or visiting the sick, shopping, visiting friends etc.

Journeys are charged at 30p per mile or 40p a mile for one way journeys of a social nature, (the driver will work it out for you). Our drivers are known for their helpfulness and courtesy. If you have difficulty in walking or are visually impaired they will, if necessary, escort you to where you need to be — such as an Out Patient Clinic in Aberdeen Hospital which can be a long way from the entrance. As our drivers are all volunteers we do ask for as much notice as possible when booking, (at least 48 hours please, although in an emergency we will do our best to help).

 

The number to call for more information or for members to use to book a journey is

01340 831748

between 9 am and 5 pm, Monday to Friday and at least 48 hours before you need a car.

 

We require drivers and their cars for long and short journeys. Generous mileage allowance.

If you feel you could help us as a telephonist, committee member or fund-raiser, please contact us. Donations always welcome!; Without you we can’t operate. You’re the vital ingredient!

Administration telephone number is 01340 832350. Or email: ireneshaw1@googlemail.com
