“Lifeline” car service under threat in Motcombe
A TRANSPORT service led by volunteers in Motcombe will be forced to close unless is can find a new volunteer co-ordinator.
The car scheme helps people who are unable to use public transport with essential journeys such as visits to medical centres and dentists or trips to see family and friends in hospital.
Dorset County Council offers financial and administrative support to 12 community car services across the county. Drivers are paid a mileage allowance and receive requests for transport through the local co-ordinator.
Dorset County Council's passenger transport officer Paul Cooper said: "These schemes often offer a lifeline for those people in rural areas who are not able to use public transport or who have no other way of making essential trips.
