This service is run by volunteers, and as a Dirleton resident you are eligible as living in the North Berwick Area. It is not limited to older residents but is based on medical or other relevant need. It is a door-to-door service available for residents who find it difficult to travel to essential services (e.g. to doctor, dentist, bank or shops) and also covers journeys to local hospitals (Roodlands, Dunbar etc). Unfortunately it cannot provide transport to hospitals outside our area e.g. Edinburgh. To make a booking, phone between 9 and 12 Monday to Friday giving as much notice as possible. The suggested donation for a trip within the North Berwick area is £6 and to Haddington/Dunbar is £12. This donation is made at the time of the journey into an envelope provided.
