Rideability - door to door community transport
Rideability is a wheelchair accessible minibus service for vulnerable people living in Blackpool who are unable to use public transport for a variety of reasons.
The service operates on Mondays to Saturdays: 8.00am to 4.00pm and can be used for journeys in the Blackpool area.
Trips into neighbouring areas may be able to be accommodated depending upon service capacity.
It is free to become a member of Rideability. Call us on 01253 476668. You'll need to have your contact details and your NoWcard to hand when registering.
If you are a wheelchair user, a member of our team will need to come out to visit you and conduct an assessment. This is to make sure that you can use your wheelchair safely as a seat on our transport.
Please note that we are unable to transport mobility scooters.
