Community Wheels is a community car scheme for people in Central & North Herefordshire who are unable to use public transport and have no access to private transport of their own.
Local Travel Links in your area
Community Wheels is one of seven independent community transport schemes operating across Herefordshire. Between us all we provide community transport across the whole of Herefordshire. For further information and contact details for your local Travel Links scheme please download the leaflet.
Community Wheels has built up a reputation of providing an efficient, reliable and friendly service to a large number of clients. For many, our scheme means the difference between getting out and seeing friends, doing the shopping, visiting a doctor or simply staying at home because there is no other choice. Community Wheels exists to tackle these issues.
There is a small charge made for using our service. Fares are subsidised by our funders which include Herefordshire Council, and are similar to the cost of using a bus.
To use the service, clients must live within Central and North Herefordshire and have no alternative means of transport. The service is particularly aimed at those who live in remote areas. Trips are limited to within the county (although exceptions are made) and can be for any reason.
Where can I travel from?
Community Wheels serves the rural area of Central and North Herefordshire and covers parishes stretching from Leintwardine in the north to Fownhope in the south

Where can I go to?
Well the answer to that is pretty much up to you! Community Wheels will take people without the means or ability to travel to anywhere within Herefordshire, for any reason.
About Community Transport
Community Wheels was established over 21 years ago to meet the needs of transport users who were unable to access public or private transport. The project serves the Central and North Herefordshire and covers over 100 parishes stretching from Leintwardine in the north to Fownhope in the south. The scheme was born out of the idea that no one should be isolated due to a lack of transport and that the service would be available to all who qualify.
Based in Leominster, we co-ordinate a team of over 85 dedicated drivers who simply wish to make their community a better place to live.
After we take your call we contact the nearest driver to your location where we pass on your details and ensure your trip runs as smoothly as possible. All our drivers give their time freely and thanks to our funders we are able to continue to offer this important service. Naturally, we are always seeking additional funds to help run the project and all donations are most welcome.

We are currently looking for volunteer drivers living anywhere within Central or North Herefordshire – if you have a car and some spare time then Community Wheels would love to hear from you.
Expenses are paid to cover the cost of fuel/travel. A few hours a week could make a huge difference to someone without transport.
