Caithness Rural Transport provides a service that is designed for people living in rural areas regardless of age and our town service is open to elderly and disabled people. The service can be used for shopping, visiting friends, social functions, medical appointments etc. The driver will be there to assist you with the steps or wheelchair access to the vehicle and all our drivers are Midas (Minibus Driver Awareness) trained.
We have wheelchair adapted vehicles based in Wick, Thurso and Dunbeath, as well as a 10 seat minibus also adapted, which is available for group hire.
We charge an annual membership fee of £11 or £5 for a short term fee and a mileage charge per person per journey is applied.
