Transport from Home is a membership transport service that runs across the borough for residents of Epsom and Ewell. Transport from Home is for people who find accessing or using public transport challenging. This service may be suitable for people who need door to door transport and who may be disabled. The vehicles are wheelchair accessible and fully equipped to provide a safe and flexible transport service. The service operates Monday to Friday between 9am and 4.15pm. Fares are paid to the driver upon boarding the bus. The service will pick you up from home to take you to your destination. You can ring the contact centre between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday to make your travel booking. For next day travel your booking must be made by 2pm the day before. Bookings can be made three weeks in advance of the date of your journey with the exception of excursions. You can book one off journeys or enjoy regular repeat bookings, (e.g. shopping on a set day at a set time each week), this means you only need to make your booking with the contact centre once. If you require a carer to travel with you, let us know in advance, as your carer may travel free of charge. Free carer travel is available for most journey types except on excursions.
