North Dorset District Council - Medical travel grant
From the 1 April 2013, North Dorset District Council is no longer funding free all day travel in addition to the national scheme. We used to offer free travel before 9.30am, covering all North Dorset routes.
The national scheme does include some pre 9.30am routes where there is no next bus before 10.30am. For a list of these routes please see Full list of public transport services that can be used before 9.30am (19 July 2016) (pdf, 293kb) (opens in a new window)
