Accessible Group Travel for residents of Ryedale 

group travel
Are you planning a group outing or a meeting? We can help you plan your trip.

Booking a Group Trip

At Ryedale Community Transport we have a dedicated team of drivers and staff who understand the difficulties many of us experience getting out and about, either on individual journeys or when organising group travel.

We are a charity, not a commercial business.  Our volunteers and staff are here to help you.  We aim to provide safe, accessible, cost-effective transport for individuals and non-profit making groups and local organisations.

We operate a fleet of vehicles with a maximum seating capacity of 16 seats and a number of wheelchair accessible vehicles.


Your group can provide your own driver (subject to D1 qualification and MIDAS accreditation) if you have one or we can provide drivers if required. Your comfort and safety is our priority – all our drivers, whether paid or volunteers, are all Criminal Record Bureau checked (DBS) and MIDAS trained.

It is free for groups to join the scheme – just call us and register your organisation.


Subject to availability, we can take your group anywhere in the UK.


Schools, charitable organisations, religious groups, common interest groups, sports teams, youth groups and community groups etc. are eligible.  Profit-making organisations are not.


The cost is based on usage and the mileage travelled. Please call for details.  We can estimate the cost of a specific journey but please be accurate in your times required and destination. An estimate is just that: the cost is calculated on the information given and additional time and mileage will be charged accordingly. We will work out the most cost-effective pricing for you.  The quote will be valid for 30 days.

How to Apply

Call us and describe your transport requirements with our trained operators including any critical times or special requirements. You will then receive a quote for the journey and can simply book the vehicle over the phone. An application form can then be completed by post or e-mail and you can download the form here.

For further information about this service, or any other, please call 01653 699059. You can also email us on
