Gorefield Community Car Scheme
What is Gorefield Community Car Scheme?
The Car Scheme provides door-to-door transport for those folks, especially the elderly, who do not have the use of a car and cannot make a journey by bus or dial-a-ride.
The Journeys are arranged at the discretion of a coordinator and the driver of the vehicle.
These Volunteers support the community by giving both their time and vehicles and do not make a profit, only recovering their running costs.
Who may use this service?

How much does it cost?
The person requesting the journey is asked to contribute 30p per mile and each accompanying passenger 5p per passenger per mile. The driver receives a subsidy per mile from Cambridgeshire County Council.
