Ability Community Bus Service

Ability Community Bus Service

ABILITY is an on-demand community bus service operating in South Northamptonshire. They aim to tackle social isolation by offering regular shopping trips to residents living in isolated rural areas. Shopping trips run 3 days a week to the main shopping areas of Northampton, and once a week into Towcester. These services include additional drop off locations allowing passengers to reach local GPs, banking, and other services. Travel is FREE of charge after 9:30am to anyone with a concessionary bus pass, but passengers must pre-register to use the service.

ABILITY also offer an affordable PLUS service from 46p/week which allows for pickups from home or a location close to home, assistance on and off the bus, and increased advanced booking periods. PLUS service registration also gives access to its trips, excursions and lunch events around the county which aim to reduce social isolation and loneliness in rural communities. Give us a call to find out more!

*Please note: Ability are running reduced services over the current lockdown, though they are continuing to run their essential shopper service for users who need it.*
