Go North Devon Ltd plans to resume its Ring & Ride Service on Monday 7th September.
David Netherway, Chairman said “whilst the 7th September seems a long way off before Terry (driver) and our team at Go North Devon can welcome back our clients it is an unavoidable delay as we wait for our new bus 1st September.
During the Covid-19 lockdown we have spent in excess of £3,000 keeping our old minibus on the road and it is now due for further repairs, MOT and planned maintenance. However, with a significant drop in income over the last 4 months it is no longer financially viable for us to keep the old bus on the road without putting the whole of our services at risk.”
Go North Devon’s top priority is to keep its Passengers and Team Members safe at all times and so we will be operating with new protocols once the service resumes. Please click here to see our Ring & Ride protocols
The team at Go North Devon are excited to announce that they have recently been accepted into Aviva’s Community Fund Project to help them raise £5,000 for the Cancer Care Car service through crowdfunding.
This local service supports cancer patients who need to get to hospital for chemotherapy and essential cancer related appointments at hospitals in North Devon. Every donation made will have a positive impact on the lives of local cancer patients who would otherwise struggle to get to their hospital appointment due to a lack of transport in this predominately rural area.
