Transport and getting around

Community transport schemes across Dorset can help people who have problems getting out and about.

Some clubs, societies and groups may provide transport. Transport can be provided by a bus or minibus or, in many cases, volunteers' own cars, usually at low cost.

Equipment such as walking aids, frames, wheelchairs and mobility scooters can help you to get out and about if you have mobility issues.
