Dial-a-Ride

Oswestry Dial-a-Ride is a door-to-door transport service for people without access to public transport or a car.

 

We are able to operate Oswestry Dial-a-Ride thanks to our fabulous and friendly team of volunteer drivers and passenger assistants who work with our two full-time members of staff.

Helping out members of the community

 

The service is essential for members of our community who can’t get out and about and it can make a huge difference to their lives.

 

Qube currently operates five minibuses and two cars. All of our vehicles are able to carry wheelchairs.

 

Do you need to hire a wheelchair or mobility scooter? We can help with that too.
