Volunteer Cars (formally known as the Community Car Scheme) is a one-to-one transport provision available to residents of Kensington & Chelsea who can’t access mainstream public transport easily
To book a Volunteer Car, you will need to be a member of Westway CT. Members can book a journey to attend activities and classes, visit friends and family, attend appointments or just generally go about their everyday business.
The Volunteer Cars are not a regular taxi service they are driven by volunteers who use their cars or one of our designated accessible vehicles. Journeys cannot be guaranteed until a volunteer is paired with your booking and willing to drive.
You will be expected to pay £2.20 per mile for your trip. The mileage is calculated by the length of the journey in the vehicle. The driver will note the start and end mileage of every trip which we then enter into our bookings system and an invoice will be generated and sent out to you.
Volunteers and Vehicles
The majority of our volunteers use their cars, but we also have a few designated smaller vehicles in our overall fleet. Two of these cars are wheelchair accessible so that we can offer this service to members who cannot transfer from a wheelchair to a car seat.
