Community Transport: Dial-a-Ride Grant Funding

Grant funding is available for any borough/district or existing or newly established voluntary organisation providing a Dial-a-Ride service. It is also available for projects that provide services to promote or develop community transport initiatives to Surrey residents in Surrey and neighbouring areas.

Please note that this funding is closed and by invitation only. Organisations will be invited to apply for the grant funding which will be published 14 July 2017 on the In-Tend system. For further information please visit the e-Sourcing portal or email the Travel and Transport Group:

The overall aim of a Dial-a-Ride service is to provide door to door transport to anyone:

  1. who has a mobility or sensory impairment which means experience difficulty or discomfort in using conventional bus services, or are unable to use them altogether;
  2. who does not have access to a car and there is no bus service running when they need to travel.
