People with disabilities are set to find it easier to get on the move, thanks to a new and improved Dial a Ride Service in Southend.

From Monday 4th July, a Southend-based family run company called Access Anyone Ltd will run the service for Southend residents in partnership with Southend-on-Sea Borough Council.

Access Anyone operates a fleet of 25 wheelchair accessible vehicles and is keen to expand the available booking hours, provide a dedicated transport to work scheme, and operate day trips for eligible users

The Council’s Executive Councillor for Corporate Support Services, Councillor Andrew Moring said: “We are very pleased to be able to offer this service in partnership with Access Anyone.

The company, like us, is committed to providing an excellent service and making sure people are able to get out and about. “

Access Anyone also aims to create a Dial-A-Ride community, producing monthly newsletters for members and helping people get out on trips to clubs and theatres.

To use the service people must have a current membership and meet eligibility criteria covering a range of registered, permanent and non-permanent disabilities, which prevent them from using mainstream transport.
