The most common types of journey requested are to get to health and care-related appointments, though journeys can be made for other purposes. We have helped passengers get to appointments at Musgrove and Nuffield hospitals in Taunton, Exeter and Bristol, as well as to other destinations including Taunton Railway Station, Bridgwater Coach Station and Bristol Airport.

The cost to the passenger is worked out on miles travelled and they will be told the price before completing their booking. The drivers offer their time freely and in return receive expenses in respect of the mileage they incur.

Journeys must be pre-booked through Atwest, with at least 3 working days notice. The Scheme Coordinator will match up travel requirements with the drivers available and confirm all the arrangements with the passenger. The volunteer driver will then pick up the passenger from their home and take them to their destination. The driver can also wait up to 3 hours and bring them back home if requested and pre-booked. At Musgrove drivers get one free hour parking. Passengers are liable for any further parking charges.

Minehead Car Scheme is operated by volunteer drivers driving their own vehicles. It is designed to help people in Minehead, Alcombe, Dunster, Timberscombe and Carhampton who have difficulty using public transport or who must travel to or from locations when there is no public transport available.  We can help when there is no other way to get there!

The Minehead Car Scheme is looking for additional drivers.  All you need is a bit of time to spare, your own vehicle, and a willingness to help people access hospital and other appointments. Mileage expenses are paid.
Please phone Atwest on 01643 709701 for more details.
