Cheshire East Council’s Flexible Transport Service
Flexible transport is a ‘demand responsive’ transport solution which provides an alternative means of travel for older and disabled people. All journeys must be pre-booked so that routes can be planned efficiently. The service works on a demand responsive basis.
Bookings Call 0845 077 9110 to book requests (local call charges apply, calls from mobiles may cost more). The booking line is open 09:30am – 12:30pm Monday to Friday.
Customers registered to use Flexible Transport may make a request for a booking by calling the operator between 24 hours and one month in advance of when they wish to travel. The more notice customers are able to provide, the more efficiently the operator will be able to plan each journey and route.
Flexible Transport in Cheshire East is operated by D&G Little Bus.
Minibuses are fully accessible and equipped with low steps and lifts so that customers who find it difficult to use steps or who are users of a wheelchair can access the vehicle easily and safely.
Drivers are fully aware that customers will have varying levels of mobility and / or disability and will give due care and consideration to invividual needs. Further assistance, such as support in getting on / off the vehicle or assistance with taking bags to and from the vehicle to your door will be provided as part of the service.
