SCA Transport provide the Dial a Ride service on behalf of Southampton City Council.
It is a dedicated transport service to help you if you are unable to use mainstream public transport. It is for people of all ages, living in Southampton. SCA Transport have specially adapted vehicles that can carry wheelchairs and seated passengers for journeys anywhere within the Southampton City boundaries.
During Covid times this service is still available and is being run with full PPE and social distancing measures in place.
We know this service makes a huge difference to people’s lives in normal times, enabling people to get out into their communities where they otherwise would not be able to. During lockdown and Shielding we know that trips out, whether for shopping, picking up prescriptions or simply catching up with friends (within the Government guidelines) are more important than ever.
All of our journeys are risk assessed in advance and you should have confidence that we will take care to understand your personal situation before we plan a journey with you.
Dial a Ride bookings can be taken between 9am and 4pm, Monday to Friday. Vehicle operating times are between 9.15am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.
An answering machine is available outside of normal office hours.
