    Following recent government advice Royston Community Transport is getting back to a near normal service - but we’re not quite there yet! Medical appointments will still take priority but we are now able to offer additional social visits, eg hairdressers and shopping trips. A minimum of 15 minutes (each way) providing we have the drivers available and you are not on the Governments Shielding Patients List. We at RDCT are monitoring the situation on a daily basis, and no doubt by the time you read this the situation may well have changed! Our wheelchair accessible vehicles are all available and we can now offer some bus outings for social groups, however, we will have to implement the 1m plus guide for seating, which will limit the number we can carry. All our buses are spray sanitized between use, and car surfaces are cleaned between journeys hand sanitizers are fitted in all vehicles. Passengers must not travel in any vehicle if they have any Covid-19 symptoms.
    To book a trip please ring our office as usual: 01763 245228
