THE CHILTERNS DIAL -A-RIDE (CDAR)

                  Charity No 1161606

                 INFORMATION SHEET

 CDAR is a charity that provides a door to door, there and back (two way) transport service with trained, caring drivers using our bespoke minibuses, all with wheelchair access. We serve those in the community who have difficulty getting out and about.

Individuals (2019/20)pay an ANNUAL membership fee of £20 to cover admin costs

  • Fares are £5 for the first 3 miles and £1.50 a mile thereafter.
  • No charge  is made for an accompanying carer.
  • No extra charge is made for wheelchair users.
  • And we collect you at the time agreed to take you  home again.
  • Journeys preferably should be booked at least 4 working days in advance.

 The fares you pay are subsidised - and for short journeys are comparable or lower than a taxi and for longer journeys, certainly so.

Two examples, say, for someone living in Amersham-on-the Hill.

1. Ride (door to door) from Amersham to Wycombe Hospital, Driver waits or returns to collect you 2 hours later to return home.  18 miles.  CDAR fare £28, taxi fare £40.

2. Ride (door to door) from Amersham to Stoke Mandeville Hospital and picked up 2 hours later to return home.  30 miles.  CDAR fare £46, taxi fare £58 (with wheelchair,  minimum £70).

Wheelchairs: Local taxis will generally only take a wheelchair user provided the user can sit in the vehicle with the wheelchair folded up. Commercial entities that do have wheelchair access (as CDAR does) charge a considerable premium for the privilege. 

Group outings: Ring CDAR to discuss, get a quote and arrange.
