Dial-a-Bus is a door-to-door bus service for any Christchurch resident of any age who finds it difficult to use public transport. The bus is specially adapted for the disabled and there are friendly drivers and bus buddies on hand to assist with this door to door service.
This has been a very popular service for local residents who report that they not only find it invaluable in making outings easier, but also a great way to socialise and meet new people. Dial a Bus also supports the popular weekly Lunch Club at Somerford ARC on Wednesdays.

A massive "Thank you" from everyone involved with Dial A Bus to both Dave and Tink for their hard work; not only co-ordinating, administering and driving for this very worthwhile service, but they have also both been instrumental in
developing and expanding the service: we now
