Safe and comfortable for older people

Age UK Northamptonshire runs a small fleet of minibuses that provide comfortable, safe transport for older people.

Poor health, disability or fraility can mean that many older people are no longer able to drive and cannot use public transport.  Our wheelchair-accessible minibuses take people to our Wellbeing Centres, lunch clubs and other activities.

Fully-trained drivers

All our drivers have received First Aid, Dementia Awareness, MIDAS and Manual Handling training.  They also enjoy meeting older people and ensuring that their passengers feel safe and well cared for.

Comfortable vehicles

Our 17 minibuses are based at five of our Wellbeing Centres.  They are also used to transport people to lunch clubs and other activities that we run throughout the county.

Cancelling your transport

Please let us know if you or a relative do not need to be picked up on a particular day.  This will save unnecessary delays for the other passengers on the minibus.
