Everyone who wishes to use our service is required to be a member.
We have two offers:
- Our Basic Demand Responsive Service (DRS) is free for non-assisted travel where the minibus will arrive at the appointed time in a place nearest to the passengers’ address. They will wait for a few minutes and, if the passenger does not appear, will move on to the next pickup. These journeys can be booked one day in advance.
- The Full NDDS Door-to-Door Membership is available at an annual cost of £25 where the drivers will pick up from the member’s address (or specified location), help them to and from the minibus, assist with shopping and other goods on and off the bus and to the front door if required. NDDS Door-to-Door membership users get priority booking for the bus and in addition can book our Shopping Service and Lunch Club outings.
Providing members have a valid bus pass then all travel after 9.30 am is free of charge, with travel before this time incurring a small fare.
Our members range in ages from just four to over 100 years old!
