Community Car Scheme
Community Car Scheme
A one-to-one car service provided by our team of volunteers and specifically for individuals who find it difficult to use public transport, because of disability, frailty or age.
The Community Car Scheme if for older or disabled people who cannot access mainstream public transport easily. The scheme enables you to get out and about more often enabling you to lead a fuller more active life.
As a member you choose where you want to go, what you want to do and when you want to do it. You can book a journey to attend activities and classes, visit friends and family, attend appointments or just generally go about your everyday business. A journey can be booked for just about every occasion.
Once you are a member it's easy to book a trip. Just call our offices (see the details below) and if we are busy on the telephones you can leave a message on our answerphone system and we will get back to you.
The scheme is not a normal taxi service and is supported solely by our team of volunteers who use their own cars, or one of our vehicles. This means we cannot guarantee you a journey, until we find a volunteer wiling to drive you.
In order for you to use the Community Car Scheme you will need to become a member of our Door to Door services and pay an annual membership fee of £12.
You can download a membership form which you will need to fill in and send to us with your your annual membership fee. If you are unable to download a form please give us a call on 020 8964 1114 and we can send one out to you.

What do our customers say?
This is the first time that young people have engaged in trampolineing in this way and they had a wonderful time. This trip would have not been possible if it wasn’t for the Innovation Fund as the young people travelled to the venue via Westway minibus services.
I just wanted to say thanks for organising the taxi last night and how great Adebe is. Your drivers are always lovely but he was especially helpful and it’s always so reassuring to know our members are being looked after.

A taxi from the station to the farm is over £10 and this alone is a price many parents cannot afford. Having access to the Innovation fund has meant that we can support with the cost of transport, meaning the parents can access this opportunity and keep their money for buying fruit when they are there.

The Innovation Fund has been of a great benefit to Lunch Club+ 4 The Bind. We have been on about 4 shopping trips - and counting this coming Saturday - 2 seaside trips
Bill Gough, Lunch Club 4 the Blind
Transport is very well maintained. Drivers and Escorts are excellent and have a good supportive manner which is very important with older people.
Sue Cornish, RBKC Library Service
Adrian is a brilliant Tutor, clear and easy to understand. So happy I chose this company, I also met Kevin; seriously both wonderful tutors. So relaxed, thank you guys.

I had an outing to Richmond Park and Abdul was our driver. I just wanted to say how helpful, patient and calm he was, nothing was too much trouble. Everyone had a really great day and he very much contributed to that.
Group Transport Service
It is so liberating to be able to get about again and be truly independent. I cannot thank those running the scheme enough.
Kevin Foster was professional, knowledgeable, patient and understanding. His friendly and chatty demeanour took away any anxiety we may have felt about learning a new skill. Highly recommend Kevin to any potential students/organisations.

Thank you for the lovely service we had this week. The clients were happy with the access of the bus and the driver was helpful.

I am writing to personally thank you for all of the support Westway CT provided in helping deliver Christmas Hampers to elderly residents in Westminster. I know the task became more challenging than originally expected, however Richard Yeatman and his team were flexible, responsive and a pleasure to work with.

I wanted to compliment Richie Dacres-Sam. He has been a pleasure to speak with on the phone, regarding dealing with bookings for one of my clients I visit at home. Very efficient and well mannered, no problems at all with the bookings.

You have a great team when booking and the drivers are all so friendly and very helpful

From the minute I walked into Westway CT I knew it was the place for me. The people are lovely, I was supported all the way through my training (although it was relatively easy after the HGV training) and I was able to do volunteering work and gain some experience and confidence whilst hoping for paid employment.
