Medway Mobility is a weekly bus service specifically designed for people in the Medway area who:
- are frail and elderly; or
- have a disability
It is operated by ASD Coaches on behalf of Medway Council.
How does it work?
The Medway Mobility bus takes you from as close as possible to your front door to the centres of Chatham, Rochester, Strood or Gillingham. It also serves Medway Maritime Hospital and Hempstead Valley.
Medway Mobility operates from a different area each day of the week. It collects you between 9.30am and 10am and returns between 12.30pm and 1.30pm.
The driver will give you any help you need to get on or off the bus. It has been designed for easy access and is wheelchair-friendly.
All you need to do is register with the council. When you have received your pass, call the Medway Mobility dial-a-bus service on 01634 726 412 and book your journey at least a day in advance.
